Abstract

A critical problem facing any picture archiving and communications system (PACS) is the efficient display, processing and archiving of medical images. Associated with each image are data from diverse sources (e. g. , medical records, diagnostic tests, individual computer systems). By entering all information relevant to an image into a database, a wide variety of retrievals can be performed. If the database is interfaced to appropriate hardware, images can be easily displayed or processed, with details of file formats and imaging hardware transparent to the user. The data can then be presented in either tabular or graphical form, and can also be made available for statistical packages.
