Paper Abstract

Medical imaging workstations need capabilities for defining a Region Of Interest (ROI) within an image, so that it can be processed for visualization or quantitative measurements. The purpose of this work was to develop a generic, object-oriented toolkit which allows creation, modification, querying and traversal of an ROI. In the object-oriented design, an ROI class is defined with associated methods. An ROI object consists of a set of 3-D points represented using interval- end-points. The ROI toolkit has been developed using C++, in conjunction with patient browser and image object navigation (display) toolkits, to serve as the foundation for thoracic and neuro-radiology workstations. Because of the object-oriented design and generic representation of the ROI, this toolkit can easily facilitate standard and advanced image processing methods.
