PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System)


Abstract

This system provides a mechanism for researchers and clinicians to access images collected at the NIH. The system is primarily designed to automatically receive DICOM images from radiological scanners, but can also accept other formats. Images are archived in their native format. A simple data-base provides secure access to the archive. Images from DICOM-capable scanners are automatically sent to the "catcher" program running on a small UNIX workstation, which has adequate local storage for one day's images. Images are then moved into the archive. Typically, less than 45 minutes after a scan is completed, the images are available in the archive. Financial Disclosure: S. Misra in an employee of Sensor Sysytems, Inc. and J. Conner is an employee of DeJarnette Research Systems, Inc.
