SCHOEMAN, Ryno  e  MOSTERT-PHIPPS, Nicky. Referring physician perceptions of picture archive and communication systems. S. Afr. J. radiol. (Online) [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.1, pp.1-5. ISSN 2078-6778.

The picture archive and communication system (PACS) is a digital radiographic system that is steadily replacing the older film-based radiographic records. Despite the various benefits associated with PACS implementation, it is not yet clear what referring physicians think of such systems. This article reviews their thoughts and perceptions, which were obtained via surveys that were completed by referring physicians with practices at private hospitals in Port Elizabeth. A critical analysis of the data collected indicated that most referring physicians perceive PACS to be beneficial.
