Paper Abstract

This paper is concerned with the main underlying concepts of a comprehensive data model for the medical image database (MIDB), which was developed by the NRV-PACS group. This model is based on semantic and object-oriented model theory and describes not only an image and its environment, as it is the case for standard models, but all meaningful informations of medical image environment, such as acquired or processed data set structures. This model can also take into account changes in image production processes (new kinds of acquisition or new image processing techniques) because it does not describe the entities themselves but how they are created.
