Paper Abstract

Several PACS prototypes are currently being constructed across the country. This article traces through the development of one such prototype at the University of Kansas. The prototype consists of three types of nodes; an image acquisition node, an archival node and a display node. These nodes communicate with one another via an Ethernet protocol. The reader will gain a view of the prototypes hardware and software architecture as it is to date. Motivations for key engineering decisions will be presented. Finally, the current status and future plans for the prototype will be discussed.
