Paper Abstract

Multiple benefits for PACS development can be expected to derive from careful assessment or modeling of current system operations. Our approach to modeling the radiology department operations at UNC-CH is based on two assumptions: 1) a department consists of multiple, operationally similar modules and 2) individual modules can be sufficiently characterized by use of a single template. Our procedures and conclusions in developing the modality portion of this template are described. Future modeling work is directed towards characterizing interactions within radiology and between radiology and other clinics which should, we believe, complete the characterization for a single module of the radiology department.
