The American College of Radiology (ACR) and the National Electrical Manufacturing Association (NEMA) in 1982 formed the ACR-NEMA committee to develop a standard to enable equipment from different vendors to communicate and participate in a picture archiving and communications system (PACS). The standard focused mostly on interconnectivity issues and communication needs of PACS. It was patterned after the international standards organization open systems interconnection (ISO/OSI) reference model…

Evaluation of the ACR-NEMA standard for communications in digital radiology.
TLDR
It is concluded that the ACR-NEMA standard is not well suited for application to the networked environment of picture archiving and communications systems and a major revision of the existing standard is recommended.
Concepts and system requirements for a global PACS
TLDR
This paper investigates the concepts of a global PACS and presents the user scenarios and system requirements for such systems, using user scenarios which describe diagnosis from remote workstations, interactive consultations when the experts are at remote locations, and conferencing between several experts located across country.

Implementing The ACR-NEMA Protocol On A Network
TLDR
The implementation of specific protocol requirements will be described, including the virtual channels and end-to-end connection service, and early performance results will be presented.
On enhancing the performance of the ACR-NEMA protocol
TLDR
The objective of such enhancements is to make the ACR-NEMA protocol better suited for transmission of large images, and it is shown that such enhancements result in a much improved system performance.
