Paper Abstract

Due to the expense and time required to configure and evaluate large scale PACS rapid modeling and simulation of system configurations is critical. The results of the analysis can be used to drive the design of both hardware and software. System designers can use the models to help them during the actual system integration. This paper will show how the LANNET 11. 5 and NE1''WORK 11. 5 modeling tools can be used hierarchically to model and simulate large PACS. The detailed description of the Communication Network model which is one of three models used for the Medical Diagnostic Imaging Support System (MDIS) design analysis will be presented. The paper will conclude with future issues in the modeling of MDIS and other large heterogeneous networks of computers and workstations. The way that the models might be used throughout the system life cycle to reduce the operation and maintenance costs of the system is explained.
