PACS Network Optimisation – Dissertation Project

Abstract This project aims to address PACS network optimisation, as it is being increased in clinical use. More data is being transmitted across PACS network environments which may include patient records or patients’ medical images. Without optimisation the network may suffer performance issues.  This project plans to design and implement different topologies for the PACS […]
