Paper Abstract

Digital image archives are central to the operation of PACS systems for medical images. Current technology that supports the terabyte requirements of today's radiology departments include magnetic tape, write once optical disk (WORM), erasable optical disk, and optical tape. We review current storage technology and place it in the context of current database requirements for radiological digital imaging.
