Paper Abstract

Institutions involved in the research and development of picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) have formulated numerous models that can be used to design the optimal PACS. The models can be classified into one of three categories: engineering, operational, or cost-effectiveness. This paper concentrates on one result of the engineering models: the need for a large network bandwidth in a clinical PACS. The authors discuss a software solution that they have implemented which can cost-effectively achieve the required bandwidths for the majority of the transactions. The software operates on commercially available hardware. The scenarios under which the implementation may fail are also presented.
