The purpose of this paper is to identify certain critical issues of incorporating digital library (DL) technology into large scale biomedical image archives such as picture archiving and communication systems (PACS). Digital library technology can increase the knowledge content and utilities of PACS and associated medical systems to provide a broader range of biomedical imaging services. Furthermore, we illustrate certain application areas with examples from prototypes developed on the hospital-integrated PACS at UCSF.
