Paper Abstract

As more and more radiological imaging modalities become dependent on digital technology there is a need to bring together digital images for diagnostic comparison. Currently this multimodality display is done by transferring images to film and then displaying them on a light box. In this paper we discuss the hardware and software architecture of a prototype multiple 1024x1024 digital image viewing station. This station is based on the Multimodality Acquisition and Review System (MARS) developed by Gould Incorporated. We present details on MARS hardware and software architecture and discuss our preliminary experience with the system using a sample radiological image data base which we have assembled.
