I really enjoyed listening to your presentation about the PAC System. This PAC system sounds very important and vital to the hospital’s system. During my observation time at Sparrow, I noticed it was so important to always send your images to the PAC system since it connected the doctors, nurses, and the patients together. It allows such a swifter and organized system where things are not lost as easily. While listening, I heard you say there were no credentials needed to operate the system but I was wondering if there was specific training and guidelines used when using the PAC system?
I also enjoyed hearing about how the system is used and the storage types. Do you happen to know why the short term images are produced much faster than the long term storage types? It was very interesting to hear about these storage types and how they transfer between hospitals. While listening to your presentation, you brought up the average costs of the PACS system and I was curious to know how they typically price these things out? Would it be more of a software bought and used or separate bills throughout.

Great work on your presentation on the PAC system. I was very impressed with how quickly you can access information, 3-5 seconds or 1-5 minutes, that is so convenient for health care workers to have those immediate results. Did you find any research on how the PAC system has improved the health care system? It seems like all areas of patient care would be improved with the accessibility of patient records. Do all medical facilities participate in PACS? As radiology technologist what will your role with PACS be? I thought it was interesting that depending on if records are short term or long-term storage determines how far from the hospital the storage facility is, do you know what the significance of this is?
I learned a lot listening to your presentation, Nice Job.

I find the PACS fascinating, we have moved so far in technology in Radiography image production and storage. It is interesting how hospital systems have local and distance storage archives for their x-ray images. In your research did you happen to learn about how they images are stored in disaster recovery archives? It is so neat to see our profession always moving forward with technology and how it is so beneficial with patient care, diagnosis and treatments. Your presentation was very interesting, nice job Bailey.

PACS is such a vital part of our everyday work in Diagnostic imaging. With today’s technology, many radiologists can read offsite, or even at home with a system set up. I find PACS very interesting. Thank you for getting this information out to everyone. Great job!
