How many meetings have you gone to where there are round-table introductions and they pose an extra "get to know you better" topic each person is supposed to tell about themselves.  I was discussing this with a fellow PACS administrator lately and here's a list of extra topics you can use at your next PACS meeting:
  • Favorite time to get woken up in the middle of the night with a PACS outage only to find out there was nothing wrong
  • Favorite stupid tech mistake story
  • Favorite DICOM tag pair
  • Favorite mis-routing of an IT help desk call
  • Least favorite PACS vendor and why
  • Favorite single point of a failure in your PACS environment
  • Favorite thing to do during telephone conference call.  (Pay attention and take notes, right?)
  • If I could get the techs at my facility to do one thing it would be . . . 
  • Given the choice, would you go back to film? 
OK - back to work everybody!
