Paper Abstract

In this study, we designed and implemented a temporal image database for outcome analysis of lung nodules based on spiral CT images. The software package is composed of three parts. They are, respectively, a database management system which stores patient image data and nodule information; a user-friendly graphical user interface which allows a user to interface with the image database; and image processing tools that are designed to segment out lung nodules in the CT image with a simple mouse click anywhere inside a nodule. The image database uses the relational Sybase database system. Patient images and nodule information are stored in separate tables. Software interface has been designed to allow a user to retrieve any patient study from the picture archiving and communication system into the image database.
