Paper Abstract

A cost-effective series of video workstations was developed for the display and manipulation of diagnostic medical images by the radiologist as well as the referring physician. The workstations feature various monitor configurations with 512-visible line display resolution, less than five second image retrieval, and a carefully considered function keyboard. An M/NET workstation is one of a potential twenty such display nodes in a distributed image management system (M/NET). In addition to the necessary display, enhancement, and mensuration features described for the display nodes, the M/NET system also provides for image Acquisition,Management/Archiving, and Communications. The M/NET system featuring the network of 512-visible line, easy-to-operate workstations was designed to provide a cost-effective transition from the current film-based to the future digital imaging department.
