Paper Abstract

We have developed a system for routine teleradiology between a local clinic and a central hospital, where the dictation is digital, and sound data is transmitted in real-time over a digital 64 kbit/s network. The need to stock, transfer, and account for analog tapes is eliminated. The dictation is integrated in a program for viewing the patient images, so that the audio data is automatically connected with the current patient. The doctor uses a commercial workstation running UNIX, with image display on multiple X windows servers. The dictation is transcribed by the secretary who uses an ordinary PC equipped with a popular sound board. Sound data is transmitted over the teleradiology network during playback, and the text file containing the transcription is also connected with the patient.
