Abstract

The process of the computed tomography picture archiving and communication system (CT PACS) trial enabled to recognize issues that were invisible without actually doing the work. These issues range from standard series descriptions and scanning protocols to devising timely plans for system training, implementation, and support. The department learned a great deal from the trial that can now be applied to not only CT but all modalities as a transition to a PACS-based practice was made.
