Paper Abstract

Software written in the Java programming language is platform independent, remotely executable and downloadable on demand. In this paper, we describe a toolkit developed in Java for the purpose of visualizing and analyzing biomedical images. It is comprised of a number of class libraries that enable selection, viewing, manipulation and analysis of biomedical images. Java's class libraries and special features such as interfaces, multithreading, etc., are extensively used in the design and implementation of the toolkit. The current version of the visualization toolkit supports viewing of JPEG and GIF images only. A medical image viewer developed using this toolkit can be used by doctors in hospitals, offices or at any other locations using a Java-enabled web browser running on a variety of hardware/software platforms.
