Paper Abstract

We have implemented all digital collection, analysis, review, and archival storage of nuclear medicine data using commercially available computer hardware. In order to allow for modestly rapid retrieval of data from our archival store, an on-line directory system has been developed. The directory contains a subset of the fields which are entered into the patient's demographic data block and a pointer to the physical disk and logical location of the study. The directory is formed semi-automatically and is tolerant of operator error. The directory can be searched in under one minute for any combination of sub-fields. This directory system has been convenient and reliable for accessing our relatively small data base (about 6500 studies per year), but may be expandable to larger systems.
