  • Steven C. Horii


There are numerous reasons for making a change from a film-based radiology department or practice to an electronic one. However, for any facility to make such a change, it is important first to ask a fundamental question, “Why do we want to make a change to PACS?” If the radiology group has difficulty answering this question, it is either too early to make this decision, or the group needs to do further study.
