Paper Abstract

The advent of picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) promises to confer a number of significant advantages upon the practice of medicine, in general, and upon radiology, in particular. This promise, notwithstanding, numerous important obstacles to a complete, clinically effective, implementation of this technology exist. Not the least of these obstacles pertains to the area of quality assurance (QA). The remainder of this manuscript will review the approach that many conventional departments of radiology have taken to QA problems. This information will be used as a foundation for conjecture about QA issues that are likely to be important in a totally digital environment.
