Advantages to the digital environment over film include -Digital images can be manipulated witout re exposure to patients -Digital images can be sent to remote locations -Digital images require less physical storage
BMI platforms: The computer platforms used for medical patient care purposes -PACS -Hospital information system (HIS) -Radiology information system(RIS) -Electronic medical record (EMR)
Any computer platform that is designed to deal with medical purposes such as medical care, medical information, and medical research and documentation would be classified as a/an BMI
The acronym __ stands for picture archiving and communication system. PACS
Essential characteristics of a PACS include -distribution and retrieval of didigital images -display of digital images -digital image storage and long term archival
As a result of film digitizer -hard copy analog films can be scanned into digital format -Digitized images can be placed into a PACS -Digitized images can be networked with other DICOM images
The adoption of a DICOM standard in the medical imaging industry was designed to allow various vendors to share digital data without proprientary software constraints.
The DICOM standard has established two classes of information. They are service class and object class
DICOM service class includes -image storage -image query -image retrieval -image print -image resource -examination
The service class and object class combine to form a SOP unit

__ responds to light from a laser and to hear from a thermal head. Silver based dry film
Soft copy display of images refers to images displayed via a video monitor
Advantages of soft copy display include -Ability to manipulate the images without re explosing the patients -multiple location viewing of the same image -variations in density of contrast -decreased number of lost films
The image displayed on a flat panel monitor is a soft copy
__ may have resolution as high as 3 to 5 megapixels. LCD
