ABSTRACT: We present data on 3 years of clinical experience using PACS involving developments on worklists, preloading and archiving strategies in a teaching paediatric hospital with all modalities connected to a commercial PACS. A method allowing generation of and handling of different worklists for computed radiography examinations has been developed in our centre. Worklists and archiving strategies are presented and discussed. We conclude that, with adequate worklists and efficient preloading implementation, current PACS could be used successfully in several clinical settings of a multimodality department.
