Paper Abstract

As part of the Picture Archiving and Communication System effort at the University of Florida, two General Electric high speed advantage CT scanners, a General Electric CT independent review console, a Siemens Magnatom MR imager and a General Electric Signa Advantage MR imager have been connected to a common image archive. Clinical images have been archived from these scanners for about 2 years resulting in about .75 Terabytes of image data. The original archive connections for these scanners were proprietary vendor connections which have recently been replaced by a DICOM implementation utilizing the TCP/IP protocol. A description of the old and new systems will be presented as well as a basic description of the DICOM server which was developed. Timing measurements of the performance of both the old and new interfaces were performed and are presented as well.
