Paper Abstract

The concept of a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) is defined. Existing and proposed Analog and Digital PAC Systems are desc ribed and compared in view of today's trend toward "Filmless Radiology". Rather than a "Filmless" Radiology department, we predict a Radiology depart-ment "with less film" only. It is shown how Digital PACS can help bridge the gap between analog film file rooms and filmless radiology data bases.
