A Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) is under development at
the University of Szeged, called SZOTE­PACS. The aim of the development is to provide
an archiving system, which can be used for education and for the routine consultation
The modalities at the University are in different clinics and buildings. They are
working on different computational platforms and use different output formats. The
university network (Token ring backbone, Ethernet LANs with bridges) seemed to be
good enough for the data transfer at expected rate. We could solve the problems
originated from the different platforms and formats by using converter stations (mostly
PCs) between the modalities and the university network. In this way SZOTE­PACS can
collect studies from CT, MR, NM, US and SPECT modalities, from X­film scanners and
from any station able to communicating according to the DICOM standard.
On the converter stations the studies are automatically converted from Interfile
3.3, ACR­NEMA 2.0 or TIFF formats into DICOM 3.0 format. On these computers, the
study headers can be edited by our graphic editor programs. It means that the operator can
