Paper Abstract

Due to the large volume and density of the medical images data, it is necessary the use of suitable database systems to facilitate their storage and management, interacting with the PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication Systems). This paper presents an architecture designed for acquisition and storage of the extracted data related to medical images, emphasizing the importance of experts in acquisition of consistent data. This work also presents the division of the information contained in the medical images into levels such as: low level, segmentation level, interpretation level, semantic level and related information. The levels work as a basis to the database schema represented by ER (entity relationship). This architecture has been validated by a content-based image retrieval system for Neonatology support.
