Paper Abstract

A preliminary design study has been carried out for a distributed picture archiving and communication system for the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology. The study develops design equations for three layers of a picture network and examines the estimated flow of digital images between a multiplicity of picture sources, picture archives and picture viewing stations. Application of these data to the design equations leads to some preliminary conclusions. One network architecture consistent with these conclusions is discussed.
