BASIC PRINCIPLES AND APPLICATIONS
H. K. Huang, D.Sc.
Picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) are the foundation of digital radiology and are increasingly being implemented to streamline health-care operations, facilitate teleradiology, and improve patient care.
PACS: Basic Principles and Applications integrates a comprehensive introduction to the imaging modalities and technical fundamentals of "filmless radiology" with clear guidelines for designing and implementing a PACS system. Written by a leading expert and featuring numerous illustrations, line drawings, and schematic diagrams, this practical, user-friendly resource includes individual chapters on such topics as:
* Digital radiologic image fundamentals
* Industry standards, with an emphasis on HL7 and DICOM
* Image compression
* Image acquisition gateways
* Communications and networking
* System design, installation, and evaluation
* Clinical applications and pitfalls
* Future development of PACS
PACS: Basic Principles and Applications is an essential reference and invaluable sourcebook for radiologists and radiology residents and technologists, as well as for imaging facility planners and support staff.
