Summary

"PACS: A Guide to the Digital Revolution, Second Edition," is a textbook of modern information sciences that fills an incredible need in the blossoming field of radiology. The emphasis is on a review of technological developments associated with the transition of radiology departments to filmless environments. As leaders in the field of computerized medical imaging, the editors and contributors provide insight into emerging technologies for physicians, administrators, and other interested groups. Each chapter addresses key topics in current literature with regard to the generation, transfer, interpretation, and distribution of images to the medical enterprise. This new edition has been updated to present recent developments in PACS, including: 1. An overview of the latest medical imaging standards; 2. A discussion of security issues as they relate to PACS, especially regarding HIPAA; 3. An introduction to current information on PACS workstations, including the impact of new software and hardware on radiologists; 4. An updated explanation of data storage and compression that highlights how advancements are applied; 5. A section on how PACS influences research and education, emphasizing how both educators and trainees are affected. Since health care organizations throughout the world are generating filmless implementation strategies, this exhaustive review is valued as a vital aid to leaders in the development of health care.
