Paper Abstract

At the Radiology Department at Skejby University Hospital a single modality PACS has been operational since September 1992. The system is being operated in combination with a CR reader (Digiscan). The PACS has undergone a clinical test during the same period. Ongoing upgrading of the system is being carried out. The image quality has constantly been very high. Even in test version it was possible to use the system beneficially and with few disruptions. The system has been highly accepted by all users, including distributed parts of PACS. A digital radiology system in combination with PACS and diagnostic reading of soft-copies helps advance the diagnostic quality and increases the efficiency at the Radiology Department and at the hospital in general.
