The Mayo Clinic and IBM/Rochester have jointly developed a picture archiving system (PACS) for use with Mayo's MRI and Neuro-CT imaging modalities. The system was developed to replace the imaging system's vendor-supplied magnetic tape archiving capability. The system consists of seven MR imagers and nine CT scanners, each interfaced to the PACS via IBM Personal System/2(tm) (PS/2) computers, which act as gateways from the imaging modality to the PACS network. The PAC system operates on the…

Image acquisition unit for the Mayo/IBM PACS project
This paper provides a detailed description of the function and design of the Image Acquisition Units, which are IBM Personal System/2 computers with specially developed software that operate independently in a network of cooperative subsystems and communicate with the modalities, archive subsystems, and image review server subsystems.
