As the growing of computing capability, handy mobile devices are used to explore and deal with medical images. More and more attention was paid on remote accessing to picture archiving and communication system (PACS). In this paper, the iPACS, a web-based application running on iPad, is provided to explore medical information on PACS server over a wireless local area network (WLAN), as well as to apply a series of interactive operations adapting with the multi-touch features of iPad, including 2D image processing, 3D visualization and patient information query. So the medical staff could explore medical images in the remote PACS sever smoothly with iPACS. Finally, the performance of iPACS is tested to demonstrate that the inter-device delay is small enough to provide a smooth operation.
