The definitive consultant to PACS — now with extra clinically acceptable fabric

in recent times, the sphere of photograph archiving and communications systems—PACS—and picture informatics has complicated as a result of either conceptual and technological developments. This variation of PACS and Imaging Informatics: simple rules and functions addresses the most recent during this intriguing box. not like the former version, this up-to-date textual content makes use of the framework of photograph informatics, now not physics or engineering rules, to give an explanation for PACS. it's the purely source that completely covers the severe problems with hardware/software layout and implementation in a scientific and simply understandable manner.

to bolster and replace the booklet, the author:

  • Emphasizes medical functions of PACS and integrates scientific examples through the text

  • displays the various alterations within the box, with new chapters on Web-based PACS, protection, integrating the healthcare firm, scientific administration structures, and the digital sufferer record

  • makes use of the framework of imaging informatics to provide an explanation for PACS, making the e-book obtainable to these with out complicated wisdom of physics, engineering, math, or info technology

  • Explains how PACS can increase workflow, treatment, and treatment

With the main systematic and thorough assurance of useful purposes on hand, this article is the total consultant for all these occupied with designing, imposing, and utilizing PACS. execs in clinical and allied well-being imaging informatics; radiologists and their technical employees; surgeons and oncologists and their groups; scientific and digital engineers; clinical informaticians; and fellows, graduate scholars, and complicated undergraduates will all make the most of this worthwhile resource.

"An first-class ebook for individuals taken with the layout, implementation, or just the operations of PACS and a suitable textbook."—From a overview of the former version in IEEE Engineering in medication and Biology

"The power of the e-book lies within the sizeable event of the writer, who has applied PACS at a number of associations within the usa and abroad."—From a evaluation of the former variation in Radiology

Sample text

Part II, PACS Fundamentals (Chapters 7–13), consists of materials based on revised industrial standards and workflow profiles, updated technologies, and current clinical experience of other researchers and ourselves. Part III, PACS Operation (Chapters 14–19), are mostly our group’s personal experience over the past six years in planning, design, implementation, and operating large-scale PAC systems. Part IV, PACS-based and DICOM-based Imaging Informatics (Chapters 20–28), presents systematic overview of current trends in medical imaging informatics research learned from colleagues and other researchers, as well as our own research and development.

Inamura, Greg Mogel, Christ Carr, Maria Y. Y. Law, Cammy Huang, Brent Liu, Minglin Li, Fei Cao, Jianguo Zhang, Osman Ratib, Ewa Pietka, and Stephan Erberich. Some materials used in this book were culled from these papers. I would be remiss in not acknowledging the debt of gratitude owed many wonderful colleagues for this adventure in PACS, and now imaging informatics. I thank Drs. Edmund Anthony Franken, Gabriel Wilson, Robert Leslie Bennett, and Hooshang Kangarloo for their encouragement and past support.

The milestones were recorded in two special Issues that I edited in 2005 and 2007 for the Journal of Computerized Medical Imaging and Graphics, as sequels to the special issues on picture archiving and communication systems, in 1991; on medical image databases, in 1996, and on PACS twenty Years later, in 2003. The previous special issues were mainly on PACS research and development, whereas the two newer issues were on PACS applications. The first was “Imaging Informatics” (2005), and the second was “Computer-Aided Diagnosis (CAD) and Image-Guided Decision Support” (2007).
