Abstract: Rapid changes in the medical industry have brought developments in the medical image technology, promoting most hospitals to introduce PACS (Picture and Archiving and Communication System). The concept of PACS was initiated in 1982 during the first international conference and workshop on picture archiving and communication system, held in Newport Beach, California. During the past seventeen years, many large and small PAC systems have been installed and are running smoothly. Around the world, many more systems will be planned and installed for coming years before 2016.This research paper describes the strategy of PACS which will be implemented in Sudan radiology. The purpose of the strategy is to produce adequate health services to improve Sudan radiology and to help in the management of the health Services in all areas. The strategy will change the residency programs in Sudan radiology. PACS change the nature of the work for the technologist. Implementation will be through steps. The introduction of this new technology will mandate a new method for radiologist to interface with clinicians and vice versa.
