Abstract

A PACS research project under the name “Foundations for a Hospital Integrated Picture and Communications System” (HIPACS) is currently being conducted. The overall objective is the modular conception of a experimental knowledge-based medical information management and distribution system. Image/text document access and display will be based on an intelligent user interface for diagnostic image workstations. The concept will comprise an interface with the Hospital Information System. It will be based upon standards and be realized by an interactive collaboration between 8 European research groups from universities, hospitals and industries. The pluridisciplinary groups consist of engineers, computer scientists, medical doctors and physicists.
