The radiology department of the future will be dramatically different in its operations because of the rapid development of digital radiography devices and image management technology. The introduction of new diagnostic devices such as MRI, CT, and SPECT has given powerful tools to diagnosticians, without changing the basic operational mode of radiology service. Recent advances in computed radiography (CR) and image management and communication systems (IMACS) have made it possible to move a significant portion of radiology service toward a filmless environment. It is increasingly clear that within the next several years a fully automated radiology service, with only a limited use of films, can be achieved. In such an environment the operations of a radiology service may be significantly different from those of a film-based service.
