Paper Abstract

The transition of a development prototype to a product is a challenging task. There are several shortcomings of a prototype such as the difficulty of client deployment, configuration issues and memory usage. The Eclipse RCP is a platform for development that offers many advantages such as: multiplatform nature; small memory footprint usage and extensible architecture. In this work we present the use of the Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP) as the basis for the deployment of a Contextual Medical Image Viewer. The Contextual Viewer is a concept of interface for medical/clinical information visualization that uses different contexts to enhance the user's capability and experience. We present the contextual viewer for X-Ray Angiographic images, based on Eclipse RCP, which can use information from two different sources. We conclude that the Eclipse RCP is a promising platform for final-user quality software, improving the Contextual Medical Image Viewer features.
