Paper Abstract

One ofthe biggest challenges in either a PACS or teleradiology environment is the requirement for accurate and rapid identification ofpatient examinations. Despite the major advances in DICOM and modality interfaces, this challenge has become an important and often frustrating issue at most PACS sites. The use of a DICOM interface does not ensure that the images will be properly matched with the correct patient or study.
