Digital Radiography & PACS
Based on the textbook Digital Radiography and PACS 3rd edition. Digital radiography and picture archival and communication systems (PACS) are becoming the common place for radiography and the future of radiography. There are many advantages to moving a radiology department to filmless system. This course contains information on the new developments of the latest digital imaging systems. It covers how the systems are integrated and networked so that all physicians involved in a patients care can access to the patients latest study. This cuts down on wait time for readings or having to come to the facility to view a patients study.
The course is broken up into five parts: introduction, basic principles, image acquisition and processing, PACS, and quality control and quality management. Anyone who works in a radiography facility will benefit from the information obtained in the course.
