Paper Abstract

The radiology consultation workstation is a multimedia, medical imaging workstation being developed for use in an electronic radiology environment, utilizing a prototype asynchronous transfer mode telemedicine network, in support of radiotherapy treatment planning. A radiation oncologist in the radiation oncology department, and a radiologist in the Diagnostic Radiology Department, will be able to consult, utilizing high-quality audio/video channels and high-resolution medical image displays, prior to the design of a treatment plan. Organ and lesion contouring is performed via a shared-cursor feature, in a consultation mode, allowing medical specialists to fully interact during the identification and delineation of lesions and other features.
