Paper Abstract

PACS's (Picture Archiving and Communication Systems) have matured to the commercial product stage. These systems introduce capabilities to the radiology field which can only be delivered by digital computer technology. PACS operates using workstations that are designed and configured for the tasks at hand. Various PACS configurations are possible: multi-modality, single-modality, and systems with limited focus, such as picture archiving or teleradiology. PACS installations can cost from the neighborhood of $100,000 to many times that amount. The overall cost depends on the size of the system, the characteristics of the central computer installation and those of the distributed workstations.
