Paper Abstract

The purpose of this presentation is to point out the issues of incorporating digital libraries (DL) technologies into picture archiving and communication systems (PACS). The DL technologies can be used to increase the knowledge content and utilities of PACS and associated medical information systems in providing a broader range of medical services. We further illustrate certain potential application areas with examples from a research prototype developed on top of the hospital-integrated PACS of UCSF.
