Paper Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine if the use of a PACS in ultrasound increased the number of images acquired per examination. The hypothesis that such an increase does occur was based on anecdotal information; this study sought to test the hypothesis. There was no significant difference in the total number of images per study for film and PACS.
