Paper Abstract

Network performance analysis is an important part of PACS implementation. An understanding of the operational PACS - is necessary for the development of a realistic computer model of the system. Subsequent simulations of the model will help locate under and over utilized nodes and predict the effect of changes to the network. At Georgetown, we have started a model of our AT&T PACS, by first studying the acquisition aspect of the PACS in detail and developing a computer model using PAW simulation software.
