Paper Abstract

PACS is a topic which has not yet been granted a Seal of Approval by Radiology. One must only count the negative reports published to see that. A change of name from PACS to Image Management, Archival and Communication Systems (IMACS) will also not help the matter at the current stage of development. What is needed are clinical demonstrations of the philosophy behind PACS and of the fact that it works today and is not just an ugly duckling.
