Abstract

In this paper, we describe current and future operational requirements that support a picture archiving and communication system that manages filmless digital modality images. It is shown that as the volume of filmless images increases within a department, acquisition units, workstations, and demands on the throughput capability and, flexibility of the network also increase. This in turn creates demand for sound and effective operational backups when a component of a PACS is not operating. The evolution of these systems and the importance of 24-hour coverage will require a substantial number of personnel to manage them unless operational protocols are integrated to maintain the flow of image processing during periods of dysfunction.
