PACS: Picture Archiving and Communication Systems in Biomedical Imaging
Offers a systematic approach to understanding PACS, covering basic components in biomedical imaging and image management, for students and professionals in biomedical engineering, computer science, and the physical, biological, and health sciences as well as professionals in hospital administration, radiological sciences, and image management. Comprehensive treatment is given to all radiologic acquisition devices, including conventional X-ray, computed tomography, ultrasound, MRI, radiography, and laser digitizers. Coverage also includes image compression; the planning and implementing of digital image management systems; description of some existing small- and large-scale PACS; and treatment of methods of interfacing hospital information systems, radiology information systems, and PACS.
