Paper Abstract

To date, the majority of Picture Archival and Communication Systems (PACS) have been utilized only for capture, storage, and display of radiology and in some cases, nuclear medicine images. Medical images for other subspecialty areas are currently stored in local, independent systems, which typically are not accessible throughout the healthcare enterprise and do not communicate with other hospital information or image management systems. It is likely that during the next few years, healthcare centers will expand PAC system capability to incorporate these multimedia data or alternatively, hospital-wide electronic patient record systems will be able to provide this function.
