Paper Abstract

The tasks of the radiologist include interpretation of images, communication of findings to referring physicians, and assistance in treatment planning. CT, MRI, SPECT, and PET are usually analyzed from film recorded images. On-screen analysis allows images to be quickly modified, measured, reprocessed by 2-D and 3-D methods, etc. These images are also filmed. An ideal clinical diagnostic radiology workstation must be flexible in design and provide a user interface which is consistent, intuitive and simple for every use of the system. Both efficient image analysis and filming should be addressed. This poster describes the implementation of such a workstation (CEMAX VIP) using a standard RISC Unix platform (SUN SPARCstation) and a modular software design.
