Paper Abstract

The ACR-NEMA standard allows different medical devices to communicate compatibly in a picture archiving and communication system (PACS) environment. The performance of a PACS, incorporating the ACR-NEMA standard, has been previously analyzed. It was shown that the ACR-NEMA protocol results in excessive response time values for image viewing requests. In this paper, the authors propose and study the performance effects of a number of enhancements to the ACR-NEMA standard. The objective of such enhancements is to make the ACR-NEMA protocol better suited for transmission of large images. It is shown that such enhancements, indeed, result in a much improved system performance.
