Paper Abstract

Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) will evolve into more network-centric, distributed systems in the near future. The reasons for this are better manageability, higher scalability and reduced cost of ownership. Medical image display software should be prepared for this development by making optimized use of networked resources, for instant large medical image files. Most software products currently used, however, is not designed for networked operation and imposes architectural limitations on the possible performance. We will propose an alternative software architecture for medical image display systems that can overcome this limitation without affecting the performance of conventional disk based I/O.
