PACS Bootcamp

Product code: SP-151

This one-day course is a must for imaging professionals seeking a high level understanding of the PACS system, its related clinical workflow and fundamentals, rudimentary exposure to the DICOM and HL7 standards which are integral to imaging support and workflow issues. It is a pragmatic, non-technical introductory course covering "everything you wanted to know but did not dare to ask" for those who are somewhat involved, or would like to get more involved with PACS systems from a support or administrative level.

Detailed Learning Objectives

Participants will understand the basic components of a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), the associated clinical workflow, and the information exchange between a PACS and Radiology Information Systems (RIS), and Electronic Medical Record Systems (EMR's). A high level overview of a DICOM header and HL7 order transaction will be provided to allow participants to relate this to the actual image and information exchange. This class is for beginning PACS administrators, Radiological Technologists who like to get involved with PACS, healthcare IT professionals who are interested in a PACS System Administration career and/or want to learn about healthcare imaging, radiology administrators, as well as radiologists who are interested to learn more about the PACS backend and inner workings.
