RIS/PACS systems can greatly improve patient care and physician education. However, these features come at a high cost not attainable in most developing countries. Our goal was to explore low-cost options for basic RIS/PACS. We were able to design and implement a low cost RIS/PACS solution that was used for thousands of studies. Future work will expand on the functionality and reliability of this low-cost solution.
