Paper Abstract

The requirements of a PACS database system (PACS DBS), which has been characterized to have large-volume image data, multi-media data and cross-modality reference, suggest the adoption of a distributed approach to PACS DBS design. This paper presents the design and the implementation of such a distributed PACS DBS. The design issues of a distributed PACS DBS include distributed transaction management for concurrency/recovery/security control, catalogue management for archiving fragmentation/location/replication transparency, and strategies for the distributed query processing. A prototype distributed PACS DBS that has been implemented and some implications from its evaluation will be discussed.
