Paper Abstract

Since PACS functionality and utility are relatively difficult to demonstrate beyond display capabilities, system developers have concentrated on display functions that do not necessarily address many of the problems PAC systems are expected to solve in the clinical environment. In this paper, minimal functional requirements are reviewed. These are designed ultimately to improve patient care through increased efficiency and improved communications (both within and outside of radiology). End user expectations that should be assessed when considering PACS are also discussed.
