Abstract:

As large scale PACS becomes reality the question of linking hospital systems into regional HyperPACS arises. Two key prerequisites for such systems are high network throughput and open interfaces to permit integration of heterogeneous systems. The combination of DICOM and ATM meet these two key requirements. We have developed a demonstration DICOMATM gateway for the MDIS System PACS which functions as a DICOM QueryRetrieve service provider supporting an external workstation connected via ATM to allow access of patient information and imagery. Physicians dialing in from different sites will demonstrate this open system workstation featuring teleconferencing capability and a radiology window to display and manipulate medical images simulating a HyperPACS scenario.
