  • Picture Archival Communications System

  • The Picture Archival Communications System (PACS) is in place at Lifespan's three acute care hospitals. PACS replaces hard copies of film by storing and communicating digital radiology images, such as CT or MRI scans. These images are immediately available to physicians, so a patient can get a definitive diagnosis more quickly.

    Physicians can access PACS from any computer in the hospital or in physicians' offices; it is also available through Lifelinks to physicians practicing in the community.
