The recently-held 25th Annual International EuroPACS Meeting, held in conjunction with the CARS congress, from June 27 – 30, 2007, in Berlin, Germany, addressed a wide range of information technologies and related topics. With cutting-edge themes ranging from regional PACS and teleradiology, to architecture, workstations and archiving, the conference proved once again that it is the central gathering point for specialists in medical imaging, digital x-ray, PACS and digital systems for eHealth.
The 25th EuroPACS anniversary lecture on “EuroPACS and the Evolution of PACS in Europe” was given by Dr. Davide Caramella (University of Pisa) and a tutorial on CADPACS integration was given by Dr. H.K. Bernie Huang (University of Southern California).
The programme offered a multitude of different scientific lectures, workshops and meetings focused on the latest and most significant developments in clinical practice, research and education within digital radiology. EuroPACS is Europe’s most intensive PACS congress, covering all the important subjects that are useful not just for healthcare IT personnel, but for all those concerned with efficient workflow management and the latest IT developments involving radiology. Sessions were chaired by expert topic leaders, including Dr Jarmo Reponen, Prof. Peter Mildenberger, Prof. Davide Caramella and Prof. Berthold Wein.
