Abstract

We review our experience with a picture archiving and communication system to replace film in the ultrasound section of a clinical radiology department. The system includes three ultrasound units connected by a fiberoptic network via acquisition nodes to a central data management system, workstation, and optical jukebox. The system handles 80% of sonographic studies in the department. Image production, interpretation, storage, and retrieval are evaluated. Despite limitations, a picture archiving and communication system can be integrated into a functioning ultrasound section of an active radiology department with minimal disruption and promising results.
