Paper Abstract

The architecture of a Picture Archiving and Communication System should be flexible, modular, and be easily upgradable to meet the ever growing communication needs of radiology information. The architecture of one such system being developed at AT&T Bell Laboratories is described in this paper. A fairly detailed presentation of the hardware as well as the software architecture is given. The architectural partitioning of the system into several subsystems to provide commonality among the various components of the product is described. The mapping of the common architectural subsystems across different components of the product is shown. The paper concludes with a description of the product evolution.
