Paper Abstract

For PACS to successfully replace the current film-based diagnosis system , there must be certain merits on PACS . None will use any system that may not work at least as smoothly as the current system . PACS is a big , expensive system . So , it must be at least equivalent or compatible to the current system from the performance point of view . We think the most promising way to achieve larger or full PACS is to create a system that has at least equal ability as the current film-based system , and then refine it so that the users really want to manipulate in their daily work . The point we must be aware of is that even if the prototype system is excellent in several points , when it should have defects in one point, this system may not be regarded as superior to the current system. Our way to establish PACS is to create a small system that has at least all-modality capability and high-speed processing power , and do a cooperate research on the real clinical environment and gather useful informations from them . Then we can develop new image processing methods , new mam-machine interface ,and any unforeseen features that are necessary to this kind of system . We have developed TDF-500 system from this viewpoint , and have also installed some of this system into real clinical environments . Overall reputations are good so far , and we are confident that PACS work station must meet the very basic but important features such as all-modality , multi-screen , and easy operation . Based on these informations , we will develop new technologies that must be necessary for future PACS .
