Picture Archiving and Communications Systems are now benefiting over 250,000 patients every week. Using digital x-rays eliminates problems of lost x-rays (up to 12 per cent can be lost with traditional x-ray films) and the need to reschedule 5,000 patient procedures a year, or to x-ray some patients twice. Emerging findings indicate that hospitals implementing these systems can free up about 100,000 staff hours a year (equivalent to 50 members of staff) to focus on patients better.
