Paper Abstract

This paper presents a simulation of an image display system or workstation connected to a minicomputer system which is in turn connected to a larger computer system. The use of image display systems in a medical environment is summarized and parameters discussed include image and display resolution, communication bandwidth, and workstation configuration. User activities are broken down into five categories: display, edit, manipulation, generation and browse. Typical user sessions or workloads are then composed of these categories in various proportions and the response time and effectiveness of the simulated activity is measured. Some of the results are summarized in a number of charts and graphs, with conclusions and suggestions.
