Software, Workstation Management, Picture Archiving and Communication System, Three-Dimensional Image
Definition : Picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) workstation management software designed to operate, control/monitor a limited number of their functions, and/or process data and high-resolution volumetric digital images obtained during imaging procedures, typically providing three-dimensional (3-D) images and segmentation of the images obtained during imaging procedure. This software usually interacts with devices used in the procedure, such as diagnostic imaging systems (e.g., computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasound scanning systems) as well as with recorders with very high image quality and archiving capabilities. The software may also perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the operation and analysis of the images obtained during the procedures. Three dimensional PACS workstation software is intended to work only with one or a few models of PACS workstations and related devices, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. This facilitates the processing and/or sending data from the workstation to and from other hospital information systems. The software is not usually available separate from the workstation but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment.
