Paper Abstract

Advances in fiber optics and ISDN communications technologies will enhance the communications capabilities of PACS. These enhancements will provide PACS users with continued fast access to exam data while supporting the future growth of PACS. For example, PACS will be able to handle higher resolution images, larger numbers of exams, larger numbers of users, and additional applications. This paper provides a brief tutorial on PACS networking and the impact of the new fiber optic and ISDN technologies on the evolving PACS network. The network model, topology, traffic, and performance requirements will be described, and topics such as standards, cost, and flexibility will be addressed.
