Statistics of Jns;taJJations of PACS in Japan and progress of key technologies for the past 13 years are described. The total number of installations of more than 557 is comparable with that (517) of Hospital Information System (HIS), because advanced eJec?ronJc technolo PACS for these I g ieS have brought rapid spread of vears. ExamoJes of Jaree sized PACS in Japan is raJ;ed and a m&hod for i&gration with HIS and RIS (Radiological Information S stem) is described. Standardization activities on ACS in $ Japan such as image data transfer and riling are also introduced. A unique domestic standard in Ja an for IS&C (Image Save and Carry) and electronic I! medical ima Jing of DICOM in es is presented. Situation of realization of Papan is also described. Technology Assessment of J?4CS is discussed in terms of methods and the results of measurement. Examples in Osaka University Hospital in these 6 years are resented. effectiveness of PACt In order to figure out itself; HISLRIS contribution to radiolo ical examination and reporting was measured before ACS was operated. fi The total aim of whole s stem o to maximize effectiveness of HIS4 8 eration is IS/PA S coupled each other: The results of time study, character counting in a radiological reports, network loading study and other measurement are employed to expand size of PACS in Osaka University which has 20 terminals at present.
