Paper Abstract

Electronic image display has been envisioned as a means of alleviating some of the problems that expanding radiology departments have with film management, integration of multiple imaging modalities and as a means of improving the physician's diagnostic abilities through after acquisition image contrast enhancement. In an effort to provide an electronic image display suitable for general use, several educational institutions and industry have been in the process of developing computerbased image systems called picture archival and communication systems (PACS). Functional integration of the PACS components (network, archive, database management and display) presents problems which require the development of departmental modeling, a common communication protocol, image storage devices with enormous capacities, management software and display consoles. The latter has been the object of our focus.
