Paper Abstract

This paper describes an integrated system designed to provide efficient means for DICOM compliant cardiac imaging archival, transmission and visualization based on a communications backbone matching recent enabling telematic technologies like Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) and switched Local Area Networks (LANs). Within a distributed client-server framework, the system was conceived on a modality based bottom-up approach, aiming ultrafast access to short term archives and seamless retrieval of cardiac video sequences throughout review stations located at the outpatient referral rooms, intensive and intermediate care units and operating theaters.
