Paper Abstract

The PACS project at Kyoto University Hospital in 1988 is reported in this paper. The old PAC system (KIDS: Kyoto univ. hosp. Image Database and communication System) developed since 1985 was reorganized and has been expanded to include several major digital imaging modalities such as X-ray CT, MRI, DSA and CR. The purpose of the new system (new KIDS) is to achieve the film-less environment in the field of neuro-radiology and evaluate the feasibility of the hospital wide PAC system. System configuration and present status are described. The newly designed fiber optic local area network and the new high-speed image workstation with 6 CRT screens are also mentioned.
