Paper Abstract

At the First International Conference on PACS for medical applications, the fiber optic communication network in our department was introduced. Since that time, the network has expanded substantially, the communication protocols have been significantly modified, new fiber optic interfaces have been designed, built, and installed and even further hardware changes are planned. As we gained experience during this evolutionary period, we have acquired even more confidence in the use of fiber optics, the star network configuration, standard television for review and comparison, and the hierarchical communication protocols described in this paper.
