The aim of this study was to compare the degrees of implementations of full and departmental Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS), the usage of mini-PACS and to compare digital image equipment implementation rates in the countries of the European Union plus the Czech Republic, Cyprus, Malta, Norway, Poland and Switzerland. The degree to which(More)
This paper is based on 4 years of practical experience with a developmental pre- Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) picture archiving and communication system (PACS) plus analysis from the respecification study data for a DICOM/HTML PACS replacement. High-performance, but economic, workstations are required within PACS for radiologists(More)
We describe a case of primary antiphospholipid syndrome presenting with varied arterial abnormalities. Patients with antiphospholipid syndrome commonly present with thrombotic problems, but there is a subgroup of patients who develop aneurysms with no evidence of vasculitis. This may represent part of the spectrum of the syndrome itself rather than an(More)

Conquest Hospital was a Picture Archiving and Communication Systems development site, designed to inform the specification of low cost systems and to provide information on benefits and drawbacks. The American College of Radiologists/National Electrical Manufacturers Association 2.0 protocol was used for image management. The Regional Health Authority(More)
AIM To develop, test and validate an audit database, evolved from a prior, peer-reviewed, audit tool for symptomatic multi-modality breast imaging services. MATERIALS AND METHODS The database is to cover all aspects of non-invasive breast imaging and recognize subspeciality inputs. When more than one imaging investigation is used for diagnosis, an overall(More)
The subjective side-effects of almost equivalent intravenous iodine doses of the three new low-osmolar contrast media, ioxaglate (Hexabrix), iopamidol (Niopam) and iohexol (Omnipaque) have been recorded and are found to be generally comparable. Urticaria occurred more frequently with ioxaglate than with the other contrast media and there was a tendency for(More)
Three preparations, two based on magnesium citrate and one an optimised oral mannitol regime, have been compared for their effectiveness in clearing the large bowel prior to double-contrast barium enema and for effects on barium mucosal coating. If excellent clearance alone is taken as the criterion of acceptability, the preparations based on magnesium(More)
Conquest Hospital was a UK regional development site for a pre-Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) picture archiving and communication system (PACS). The initial system was installed in mid 1992. Identification has been made of data transfer, ergonomic and single point of failure issues in the original PACS, which was called “iLAN.” This(More)
