Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) enable many Hospitals around the world to organize and distribute their radiology imagery. Services provided by PACS establish a platform for the diagnosis of different diseases. In this paper we discuss the implementation and performance results of a web-based PACS named WEBSERVEX developed under a cooperative effort between the Autonomous University of Queretaro (UAQ) and the Mexican Corporation of Radiology (CMR). WEBSERVEX presents a set of tools that allow radiologist to manipulate and annotate images using a popular format called DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine). The web-based system has been successfully installed and it is currently in use.
