A concise overview is presented on the results of the total IMAGIS (IMAGe Information System) research as carried out by BAZIS. This paper is intended as a continuation of the IMAGIS presentation at the 'Dutch PACS session' during the SPIE Medical Imaging H Conference 1988. That session was jointly organized by the Utrecht University Hospital (AZU), BAZIS and Philips Medical Systems, the partners within the Dutch PACS project. The HIS-PACS coupling/integration project has resulted in a HIS-PACS coupling that is used to transfer data from the BAZIS HIS to the prototype Philips PACS. The modelling and simulation project has resulted in a modelling and simulation package (MIRACLES), which has been used to suggest performance improvements of existing and future PACS's. To support the technology assessment project a PC program has been developed that calculates the financial consequences of the introduction of a PACS (CAPACITY). The diagnostic image quality evaluation project has provided research protocols and a software package (FEASIBLE) that have been used as an aid to execute observer performance studies. A software package (FRACTALS) has been developed so that a standard computer (113M RT PC) can be used as a simple image workstation for radiological research. Furthermore, a number of general issues concerning the development, the acceptance and the introduction of PACS are discussed.
