PACS is a medical imaging technology which provides economical storage of, and access to, images from multiple modalities. Electronic images and reports are transmitted digitally via PACS; eliminating the need to manually file, retrieve, or transport film jackets. The universal format for PACS image storage and transfer is DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine).
The hospital needed a replacement projector for its fairly bright, multi-disciplinary team room where specialists from a range of disciplines, such as pathology, oncology and radiology, meet to discuss patient cases. It needed to present the images from the PACS to the whole multi-disciplinary team so that all staff can see and discuss the cases together. The projector needed to be cost-effective and high resolution with flexible lens options to ensure flexibility in installation.
