Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) –The PACS system immediately digitizes images such as X-rays, and other scans including CT, MRI and PET, so they can be stored and electronically viewed on screens anywhere. This enables doctors and other health care professionals to access the images, even remotely, and to compare new images with previous images at the touch of a button.
