Review

"PACS: Basic Principles and Applications is useful and will fill a gap in this rapidly changing and evolving field." --Radiology, July 1999

From the Back Cover

PACS

BASIC PRINCIPLES AND APPLICATIONS

H. K. Huang, D.Sc.

Picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) are the foundation of digital radiology and are increasingly being implemented to streamline health-care operations, facilitate teleradiology, and improve patient care.

PACS: Basic Principles and Applications integrates a comprehensive introduction to the imaging modalities and technical fundamentals of "filmless radiology" with clear guidelines for designing and implementing a PACS system. Written by a leading expert and featuring numerous illustrations, line drawings, and schematic diagrams, this practical, user-friendly resource includes individual chapters on such topics as:
* Digital radiologic image fundamentals
* Industry standards, with an emphasis on HL7 and DICOM
* Image compression
* Image acquisition gateways
* Communications and networking
* System design, installation, and evaluation
* Clinical applications and pitfalls
* Future development of PACS

PACS: Basic Principles and Applications is an essential reference and invaluable sourcebook for radiologists and radiology residents and technologists, as well as for imaging facility planners and support staff.

I am a software engineer who has worked for many years in various areas of computer connectivity. I recently accepted a position with a provider of DICOM (Digital Imaging And Communication In Medicine) software packages.
I needed to get up to speed fast on the overall architecture of imaging systems and PACS. I needed a birds-eye view of the various image acquisition devices and the information management systems linking them. This book provided everything I needed. Worth the money!

This book is a MUST read for anyone involved in PACs. It has something for everyone, from a PACs administrator to an engineer configuring systems. Dr. Huang covers a wide range of material, including the basics of projectional x-ray, how different modalities work, to PACs and all of PACs elements. The book's emphasis is on the basics and principles, however. Don't look for specific companies or technology. I was also surprised that Cardiology and Clinical Imaging Systems were omitted. That said, I have not found a more complete book on the subject of PACs. The text is easy to read and the concepts clearly explained. If you need to ramp your knowledge up quickly on PACs or need a reference to use the investment in this book is WELL worth it.

Format: Paperback
One of the few available books on PACS. Highly recommended for people who want to study PACS based on one book, instead of going all out to read lots of academic papers. Cover all major concepts. Sort of expensive, though.
