Paper Abstract

An Image Management And Communication (IMAC) system adapted to the X-ray department at Sahlgrenska University Hospital has been developed using standard components. Two user demands have been considered primary: Rapid access to (display of) images and an efficient worklist management. To fulfil these demands a connection between the IMAC system and the existing Radiological Information System (RIS) has been implemented. The functional modules are: check of information consistency in data exported from image sources, a (logically) central storage of image data, viewing facility for high speed-, large volume-, clinical work, and an efficient interface to the RIS. Also, an image related database extension has been made to the RIS. The IMAC system has a strictly modular design with a simple structure. The image archive and short term storage are logically the same and acts as a huge disk. Through NFS all image data is available to all the connected workstations. All patient selection for viewing is through worklists, which are created by selection criteria in the RIS, by the use of barcodes, or, in singular cases, by entering the patient ID by hand.
