Paper Abstract

The operative pictures are important medical resources. But currently, the operational record doesn't include the operative pictures. The surgeons usually keep the pictures by themselves. So the operative pictures are occasionally lost or destroyed. It prevents exploration of the great education and research potential of operative pictures. This research developed the methods for operative pictures acquisition, processing, storage, and retrieval. Especially, the study employed an algorithm for picture retrieval by its content. This special retrieval facility offers querying by sample pictures, and it conquers the limitation of user experience and training. This approach also developed an operational record database for accommodating picture relational information. It provides the complete information about the operative pictures. So the query result in snot just only the pictures and surgeon annotations, it also provides all relational information of the patients. This facilitates the database utilization in other departments, not just only serving for surgery.
