Paper Abstract

In the last decade medical imaging has seen many changes. Various new and improved devices have been widely accepted allowing new noninvasive approaches and reduced radiation dosage for diagnostic imaging. The need then arises to interconnect different devices from a variety of manufacturers. These devices must also be able to communicate with disks, processing units and displays. For such Medical Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) to become feasible, a communication standard is required. Interfaces conforming to this standard should be provided by all manufacturers.
