Springer-Verlag, Jan 1, 1992 - Picture archiving and communication systems in medicine - 322 pages
This book presents the results of a multidisciplinary, cooperative project which was jointly undertaken by research teams from universities, industry, and university hospitals in five European Community countries. The study shows how the digital management of diagnostic imaging pictures can be made effective in the clinical environment. The book deals in detail with the distinct issues of PACS (Picture Archiving and Communicatioins Systems) integration, such as medical requirements, communication with othersystems, networking, workstations, database, indexing methods, and standards. A clear collective view is sythesized on the architectureof a second-generation PACS, taking into account the diverse features of thepresent state of the art and expected future enhancements of PACS technology.
