Our research first started with the development of PACS (picture archive and communication systems) in 1985. We pioneered many of the concepts used today in clinical practice. PACS projects involved the assessment of imaging technologies (e.g., computed tomography, CT; magnetic resonance, MR) and helping create standards including the now ubiquitous DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine).
