Paper Abstract

Siemens Medical Engineering Group has been committed to Diagnostic Imaging from the very beginnings of x-ray imaging. The forerunner of the today's factory in Erlangen co-operated with Professor Conrad Röntgen and manufactured x-ray tubes for his research work and for the very first patient examinations in 1896. Encouraged by the positive results for the hospitals from the use of our equipment and the possibility of additional benefits expected by networking modern digital modalities, Siemens committed itself to digital image management systems (PACS) in the early 1980s [1]. Siemens now has more than ten years of experience with different application scenarios. Many of these scenarios are now running with SIENET which is the Siemens networked digital image management system. These SIENET systems are in multiple hospital or clinical settings in countries around the world. This past history has allowed us to accumulate experience from multiple configurations installed and used in these differing clinical routine environments
