Paper Abstract

A high-level description of a system to pre-fetch comparison radiographs in an Image Management and Communication System (IMAC) is presented. This rule based system estimates the relevance of previous examinations for comparison to the current examination arid uses this determination to pre-fetch comparison studies. A machine learning module should allow the system to improve its skill in pre-fetching examinations for each individual radiologist. This system could be tailored to fit the desires of individual radiologists.
