Paper Abstract

Although the functions performed by the different nodes on the PACS network are many, it is possible to formulate a minimum set of service primitives such that the application software residing at the nodes can utilize those primitives to perform the functions. These primitives define the framework for the communication interface. The question of how these primitives fit into the concept of a layered network architecture is explored in this paper. The OSI model as applicable to the PACS network is described, the areas that need standardization are briefly mentioned, and the ongoing standardization efforts are addressed from the OSI perspective.
