Paper Abstract

The management of radiological images and associated information has always been a difficult task, but technologies are being integrated to address this problem. One of the many acronyms for this technology is DIN, digital imaging network. One of the most significant obstacles to the implementation of this technology is the high cost. While cost has not prevented the radiology community from assimilating other new technologies, the major difference between previously assimilated technologies and DIN technology is that DIN produces no directly billable service and the impact on patient care is less obvious. What is the cost associated with the existing problems in radiological image management? What is the cost of solving these problems using DIN technology? Can we afford this technology? The CAMDIN model addresses these issues.
