Abstract : The Medical Diagnostic Imaging Support (MDIS) System is a project to install Picture Archive and Communications Systems (PACS) and Teleradiology in selected U.S. Military medical treatment facilities (MTF). The MDIS specifications are based on the results of three years of university and military research and development through the Digital Imaging Network Systems (DINS) Project and the Tactical Air Command Teleradiology Project. MDIS functional specifications were compiled by a team of radiologists, physicists, clinical engineers, hospital administrators, technologists, and computer systems specialists. The contract was awarded to a joint venture between Loral and Siemens Corporations in September 1991. Presently, Madigan Army Medical Center, Brooke Army Medical Center, and Wright-Patterson Air Force Medical Center are undergoing phased implementation of this system. Additional sites are planned for 1993-1994, including hospitals in the continental U.S., Hawaii, and Korea.
