Paper Abstract

As part of a design study for a complete PACS system for a large hospital in England, we were tasked to develop and evaluate a number of potential system architectures. These architectures were to be considered with respect to an operational requirements document. The alternative architectures consisted of systems with distributed and centralized archives, centralized and distributed active storage, and video and digital communications capabilities. Several different architectures are presented along with a brief discussion of their individual merits and brief comparative analysis.
