Overview

This book examines the use of state-of-the-art technology to achieve f ilmless radiology, describing its impact on healthcare systems and pro viding valuable insights into reengineering healthcare. Sharing expert ise developed in implementing Picture Archival and Communications Syst em (PACS) technology capable of supporting filmless radiology, it rela tes experiences at the Baltimore Veterans Administration Medical Cente r (VAMC), the first site to have a fully operational filmless radiolog y system. The book will provide an overview of filmless radiology with advice on acquiring PAC systems. Also included are sections on its im pact on the practice of radiology and the delivery of health care (fil mless radiology is central to teleradiology), clinical uses of compute d radiography, technological issues, and case studies from both inside and outside the VA system.
