Abstract

Electronics storage systems, image display stations, protocols, and networks capable of managing a large amount of data must be developed in order for picture archival and communications systems to become a reality.These systems must be designed based on information about procedure volumes and information about the magnitudeof data transfer rates needed at any given time. Since significant fluctuations can be expected with respect to thedemands during a 24 hour period it is important to generate a traffic model that can predict these fluctuations. Inaddition to recognizing the demands at one institution, it should be noted that different institutions may have widelydiffering needs. Data has been collected from three differing radiological environments and an investigation withregards to traffic profile and fluctuations has been performed.
