This booklet "Hospital built-in photo Archiving and communique platforms: edited through Professor M. Osteaux and others is an instantaneous product from those efforts.

It must be observed that endoscopy is moving relatively rapidly towards digitalization. Various works are presently being undertaken to incorporate endoscopy in a PACS-like system, but these are still in an early phase. Finally, the specific functional requirements and optimal architecture systems for microscopy and endoscopy, must be described and experienced by specialists in these fields, and the authors of this book definitely do not come into this category.
