Abstract: The concept of picture archiving and communication systems is now widely accepted in the medical community. Before such a system can be deployed, an accurate evaluation study must be carried out to estimate its performance characteristics. A novel approach based on stochastic activity networks, a stochastic extension of Petri nets, is useful in this regard. Stochastic activity networks are used to develop a detailed model of the command and image channels. The performance of the system is evaluated under realistic workload conditions.
Keywords: performance evaluation (of) picture archiving (and) communication systems (using) stochastic activity network(s); picture archiving (and) communication system; performance; stochastic activity network; command channels; image channels; medical application.
