Paper Abstract

PACS has represented an unfulfilled vision for many years, although many groups have now begun to implement and test system elements. To realize a complete PACS requires a dedicated effort between real users of PACS and technology providers. This paper presents the details of a joint effort between the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Washington University in St. Louis, and Digital Equipment. Corporation to establish a PACS Testbed with the goals of identifying the key deficiencies in the critical component technologies, and understanding the significant system integration issues of an operational PACS. This Imaging Testhed will strive to advance the "state-of-the-art" in the areas of network systems, large file database storage systems, high-resolution grey scale display workstations, integrated heterogeneous network applications, and international standards.
