Paper Abstract

Recent developments in digital imaging and Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) allow physicians and radiologists to assess radiographic images directly in digital form through imaging workstations. The development of medical workstations was primarily oriented toward the development of a convenient tool for rapid display of images. In this project our goal was to design and evaluate a personal desktop workstation that will provide a large number of clinically useful image analysis tools. The hardware used is a standard Macintosh II interfaced to our existing PACS network through an Ethernet interface using standard TCP/IP communication protocols. Special emphasis was placed on the design of the user interface to allow clinicians with minimal or no computer manipulation skills to use complex analysis tools.
