Paper Abstract

Multimedia database is a fundamental component in the Multimedia Radiology Information System. It provides mean by which different classes of documents (diagnostic reports, images, patient information, etc), involving several media (text, image, graphics, voice), are structured, represented, stored, manipulated and retrieved. In this paper, we first present the requirements for a multimedia database along with the data model used to describe the radiology information and procedures. Then, we describe our approach to the multimedia database design and architecture, and the corresponding prototype instance in terms of implementation and storage strategies. Finally, we give a conclusion with an overview of the research undertaken for enhanced multimedia data management
