Role of PACS Technology for the Development of Radiology Diagnostic Imaging Services
Dr. Mwahib Sid Ahmed Mohamed Osman Aldosh
Abstract: The complexity of radiology process resulting from the explosion of medical technology made it difficult for radiology personnel to render high quality, defect free, cost-effective radiology service. 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). This research paper describes and proved how PACS will produce adequate health services to improve Radiology diagnostic imaging more than the traditional radiological workflow. PACS would be enhanced by acquiring better data from direct or computer radiography, new data from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or Positron Emission Tomography (PET), or more data from multi-detector (CT). Quality issues are addressed by optimized adopting a performance improvement approach that can achieve quality goals and information technologies requires by diagnostic imaging services. The purpose of the study is to produce adequate health services to improve radiology diagnostic imaging and to assess the usefulness of PACS and whether this service changed patient management and help in the management of the health Services in all medical areas. This had been made by compare a traditional radiological workflow with one based on PACS system.
