Paper Abstract

Establishing control of the image data flow between a computed radiography system and a host computer presents many problems in a centralized PACS system design. Dedicating the main computer of the PACS system to service on-line acquisition devices will soon overload the system, especially when multiple image acquisition units are present. At UCLA, our approach is to distribute the task of buffering the input image data to a smart file server. Using a low-cost microcomputer as our image file server, we can reduce the burden to the central PACS computer when an image is to be acquired. This paper describes the design of the smart file server for a PCR/SP computed radiography system.
