Paper Abstract

Electronics storage systems, image display stations, protocols, and networks capable of managing a large amount of data must be developed in order for picture archival and communications systems to become a reality. These systems must be designed based on information about procedure volumes and information about the magnitude of data transfer rates needed at any given time. Since significant fluctuations can be expected with respect to the demands during a 24 hour period it is important to generate a traffic model that can predict these fluctuations. In addition to recognizing the demands at one institution, it should be noted that different institutions may have widely differing needs. Data has been collected from three differing radiological environments and an investigation with regards to traffic profile and fluctuations has been performed.
