Paper Abstract

Medical images contain information (in two, three, and four dimensions) that is important to the clinician in diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment. New methodologies and tools make it possible to extract, interpret, integrate, and display that information very effectively. This paper describes some of the application areas, gives examples of the tools now available and under development, identifies the benefits and costs of the new approaches, examines the issues in evaluation and validation, and looks at opportunities for further improvements.
