PACS is a medical imaging technology which provides storage of and access to images from multiple modalities (device types).

Electronic images and reports are transmitted digitally via PACS, eliminating the need to manually file, retrieve, or transport actual films. The primary format for PACS image storage and transfer is DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine).

Imaging systems consist of these major components:

  • Imaging modalities such as X-ray computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • A secured network for the transmission of patient information
  • Workstations for interpreting and reviewing images
    • Radiologist workstation Equipment configuration Non-Mammography
    • Radiologist workstation - Mammography
  • Archives for the storage and retrieval of images and reports
  • Web viewer
  • Patient Access method for image retrieval - CD burner or a cloud base system

Additional Items:

  • Speech Solution template system (can be integrated into the RIS/PACS selection)
  • HL7 interface for orders/ADT/Results

Combined with emerging web technology, PACS has the ability to deliver fast and efficient access to images, interpretations, and related data. PACS reduces the time and trouble associated with traditional film-based image retrieval, distribution, and display.
