Paper Abstract

Given today's competitive economic environment, maximization ofproductivity is essential to decrease operational costs and maximize patient throughput. A large scale PACS offers the potential to achieve lower operating costs, increased efficiency, and improved quality of care. A Picture Archival and Communications System (PACS) permits direct display of digital images. Such a system may reduce the need for time consuming processing associated with conventional film based systems
