Today most hospitals use PACS systems locally to store and evaluate video data produced by various modalities (i.e. x-ray, ultrasound, computer tomography, etc.). In terms of MeDiMed project we have built a metropolitan PACS archive opened to all hospitals interested in either storing its medicine picture data in this archive or interchanging these data with another hospitals. Now after years of operating this PACS archive we are intended to make substantial step forward. Healthcare is an area where practice, education and research are mutually interconnected and Masaryk University can serve as "opened neutral trustworthy institution". The technological objective is to support the compatibility and interoperability of medical equipments and of value added services to be provided by all participants. In the legislative area it is necessary to work on the (gradual) unification of legal standards of all EU countries so it is possible to process medical image data in the required way.
