Paper Abstract

An ultrasonic imaging system has been integrated into an existing Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) module in the Pediatric Radiology Section at UCLA. A microcomputer (IBM-PC/XT) manages the acquisition and transfer of ultrasonic images through an Ethernet network to the host computer. The microcomputer is configured with: (1) a video frame grabber that can store four ultrasound (512x512) images, (2) a network interface board employing TCP/IP protocol, (3) a 32 megabyte winchester disk, and (4) a software system which coordinates acquisition, temporary storage, and PACS transfer.
