Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A staffing model of the roles and tasks necessary for a successful implementation and operation of picture archiving and communication system (PACS) was constructed. Its objective was to form the basis for a curriculum in PACS to train individuals to fill these roles and become a part of the PACS administration profession. In addition, this model could also be used as a self-assessment tool for PACS administrators who want to become experts in their fields.
