Abstract

The ingredients seem to exist for switching from film-based radiology to digital radiology utilizing the concept Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS). Why has this not happened? What are the barriers limiting the diffusion of PACS into health care? This was the theme of the 1st Japan-Nordic Symposium in PACS, which was held in Tokyo, March 29–30, 1990. Over 40 radiologists and technical specialists in PACS participated. The topics discussed ranged from the present status of PACS in Japan and the Nordic Countries, to functional specifications and user requirements for PACS, to organizational and other changes brought about by PACS and to teleradiology as a solution for communication of images over wide distances. The symposium was quite successful and will be followed by a 2nd symposium in Finland in the summer of 1991.
