PACS

The picture archiving and communication system (PACS) channel features the latest news, videos and other content on this key information technology product category that serves as the backbone of radiology and medical image sharing. A PACS acts as a computer network for digitized radiological images and reports. Recent trends in PACS has moved away from standalone systems to enterprise imaging systems that integrate not only radiology, but all departments that generate imaging and image related reports so they can be centralized in one location and integrated into the over-arching electronic medical record (EMR). Related technologies include remote image viewing systems that allow images and reports to be accessed anywhere with a web connection, advanced visualization to reformat and perform measurement quantifications, and archive storage, which in recent years has focused on the use of remote cloud-based vendor neutral archives due to the vast amount of data storage required. Artificial intelligence (AI) is also being incorporated within all areas of PACS to increase efficiency.
