Paper Abstract

Large volumes of high resolution radiological images acquired by a picture archiving and communication system require large archival storage and high network bandwidth. We use compression to increase storage capability and improve network throughput. Decompressing image data at the image display workstation, however, may drastically interfere with the interactive operation on the station. We have developed a method which optimizes the centralized long-term image data storage with image data compression, improves local availability of image data on display workstations, and minimizes the delay at the receiving image display workstation for an interactive session.
