Paper Abstract

The World Wide Web (WWW) is becoming the predominant force for global information dissemination. The Web browsers are originally designed for the client computers to navigate and display hypermedia documents and image bitmaps stored at the server machines. Their capabilities must be extended with database query and interactive visualization before the Web could be useful for the medical imaging community. This paper presents the system design and tools for interactive query and visualization of medical images on the Web. Examples from breast and brain imaging applications are used to illustrate the operations and capabilities of such tools.
