Paper Abstract

A radiology image management network connects together imaging equipment, display workstations, hardcopy units, electronic archiving systems, and department information management systems. The imaging equipment is connected to the network through image acquisition nodes. Image data is transmitted using a local area network. Images are displayed and manipulated on gray scale display workstations. Image data is stored at archiving nodes. Desired recordings of the image data are generated at hardcopy nodes. Patient data is acquired from the department or hospital information management system using gateways.
