Interoperability of imaging devices (Modality), PACS and RIS is a crucial point determining the effectiveness and the performance of a digital diagnostic radiology department. This paper represents an integrated environment of Modality, PACS and RIS based on a communication interface using the DICOM standard. In the environment, RIS acts as the master system and provides overall image management and move control functions. This allows a considerably simplified interface design and an employment of standard DICOM services for the implementation. All important RIS - PACS inter-operation functions like Image Pre-fetching, Auto-Routing, Report Delivery, etc., are supported. Using the DICOM Standard, the system integration has been achieved with an open communication protocol and therefore is expected to be supported by various vendors.
