At BAZIS modelling and simulation are extensively used to investigate and predict the performance of (future) image information systems. This paper will describe our practical experiences as well as the data obtained with modelling and simulation during the past 4 years. It has proven to be very useful to use these techniques as decision support tool when developing PAC systems. Apart from performance prediction, modelling and simulation have also been used for hypothesis testing ("what-if-questions"). Besides, modelling and simulation have resulted in detailed insight into practical problems which might arise when introducing PACS. In order to facilitate the construction of simulation models of image information systems, we developed the modelling environment MIRACLES. The paper gives an overview of the (prototypical) PAC systems which have been simulated with MIRACLES. Finally, in this paper the future activities concerning the modelling and simulation of image information systems and their clinical environments will be discussed.
