Paper Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate the clinical acceptability of personal computer (PC)-based PACS in daily practice of HIS-RIS- Modality-PACS coupling. Materials And Methods: We are developing a hospital-wide PC-based PACS which uses HIS/RIS network. PACS servers are connecting to HIS-RIS network and store images on hard disks and magneto-optical disk (MOD) juke-boxes from 8 FCRs and 3 CT scanners. We developed the remote control software of PACS terminal from HIS terminal for physicians' easy operation in the out-patent clinics. We investigated the network workloads and display time in the daily work. Clinicians' opinion was recorded on a 5-point scale for image quality, response, and function. Result: The network workload is under the limitation and display time is within twenty-six seconds. The quality was acceptable in 54%. The response was acceptable in 25%. The function of PACS was acceptable in 40%. Conclusion: PC-based HIS/RIS/PACS coupling has possibility of acceptance.
