Virtually all radiologists and healthcare administrators believe that every radiology department will be utilizing the cutting edge technology of PACS (Picture Archival and Communications System) in the future. Filmless Radiology is the first clinically oriented book to fully describe PACS and its impact on the cost and quality of patient care. Radiologist, medical physicists, physicians, nurses, and technologists will use it as a valuable source when navigating the transition from conventional to filmless systems. Radiology and hospital administrators will find it an indispensable tool for planning, justifying and purchasing a PACS. Computer system specialists, as well as biomedical engineers, will learn detailed and technical practical information about utilizing a PACS, and the networks and communication protocols required for successful operation. Students of all healthcare professions, engineering, and law will gain a comprehensive overview of the current state of art in medical digital imaging. Filmless Radiology chronicles the clinical and administrative experience acquired over the past several years by early adopters and providers of PAC Systems, and examines the future relationship of radiology to health information systems.
