Author Affiliations +
During the period 1986-1989, the first phase of a research project in the field of computer systems for storage, communication and display of radiological images, has been carried out. This project has been financially supported by the Dutch Ministery of Health Care (WVC). Such systems are internationallyreferred to with the acronym PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication Systems). The project was jointly performed by three partners: - The Utrecht University Hospital (UUH) - BAZIS, Central Development and Support Group HIS, Leiden - Philips Netherlands/Philips InternationalB.V., product division Medical Systems. This paper will give an overview of the experiences and results which evolved from the first phase of this research project. The conclusion is that the PACS concept is attractive, but that further research will be necessary to make it implementable on full-scale. Recommendations for the continuationof PACS research in the Netherlands are made.
