Paper Abstract

The Radiology Department at the University of Pennsylvania is in the process of clinically testing the first phase of its PACS implementation. The first phase has been designed to support two Intensive Care Units, two GE SIGNA MR units and a Du Pont FD 2000 Film Digitizer. The entire system has been running clinically for about three months. Any PACS effort involves integrating software and hardware from different manufactures. Some of the equipment on a PACS network are often 'closed' and provide limited access. In addition, the entire PACS system is expected to provide uninterrupted service, have adequate throughput and ensure data integrity. By and large, these goals have been met. Clinical testing has provided valuable insights about system integration and highlighted areas of improvement in the system design. A detailed discussion of these results is presented.
