Paper Abstract

A prototype electronic picture information and communication system (PACS) should provide a means to gain practical experience in the use of video communications within a medical center, as well as provide a mechanism to accommodate sophisticated video applications in conjunction with clinical procedures. Such a system under current development at The University of North Carolina, will be described. Installation of the system will initially be within the confines of the radiology area; however it will be expanded to include other medical center locations once an appropriate system has been fully developed and verified. Dr. Edward Staab, presented an overview, describing radiology departmental PACS philosophy and program development. This report will expound upon the development of the prototype PACS to include conceptual approaches for a departmental design technique, communications network development, and test programs and project progress to-date.
