Standards like DICOM have continued to evolve and become more robust and accepted. Today, all the major manufacturers of imaging equipment provide DICOM connectivity. The large film manufacturers are investing heavily into digital technology and the validation and installation of PACS equipment and software has become much less onerous. In 1998, when I wrote the previous foreword, many were predicting a change in the practice of radiology, in part brought about by the conversion to PACS. Few foresaw the incredible increased utilization of imaging procedures and the subsequent demands placed on imaging services that have transpired over the past few years.
