Paper Abstract

The US Department of Veterans Affairs VistA hospital information system (HIS) provides a complete infrastructure to support multimedia objects as part of its electronic medical record. Acquisition, exportation, storage, long-term archiving, retrieval, display, and clinical database integration capabilities are provided for DICOM objects. We have extended HIS support of DICOM to include endoscopy and ophthalmology. Both radiology and non-radiology studies have the same need for patient and study information to properly identify images, and can use the same DICOM services, but there are some major differences.
