Paper Abstract

Ten years of PACS experience have demonstrated that PACS needs film and film needs PACS, in order to fulfill all the imaging requirements of a contemporary hospital. This paper analyzes the major technological and functional differences between film and PACS and describes a hybrid PACS paradigm which combines the strengths of both film and PACS. A practical implementation of this hybrid PACS concept in an ultrasound department is briefly described.
