The Virtual RadioIogV Environment (VRE) is a concept that takes advantage of multiple Picture Archiving & Communications Systems (PACS) via vast and robust networks. Integral to this concept is the development of an intelligent agent and data m a n a g e m e n t sofnvare that will allow instant accessibility to multiple data streams and the streamlining of workflow throughout the entire entity. A virtual radiology environment implies a department without boundaries where there is imbedded ability to mine a variety of databases ranging from workjlow, supply of physicians, patient distribution, disease patterns, equipment availability, etc. The environment will allow a free flow of information across the network.
