Abstract

A method for the integration of a picture archiving and communication system (PACS) at Kyushu University Dental Hospital with radiological information (RIS) and hospital information (HIS) systems is described. CT, US and DSA from different manufacturers were integrated by videocapture and then subsequently integrated with computed radiography (CR) by means of DICOM. The approximate amount of data stored each month on optical discs is 2 GB. The system does not incorporate intra-oral radiography.
