Paper Abstract

The Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Ottawa has developed a multimedia medical communication facility. The purpose of this system is to facilitate communication among clinicians and radiologists. More timely information should be available to the clinician using this system, as well as providing a convenient consultation mechanism . The multimedia workstation must also be of sufficient quality that the radiologist's report can be generated from the workstation without the actual x-ray films. From the physician's standpoint, the system must be easy to learn, easy to use, and have the appropriate functionality to accomodate diagnosis and report generation. This paper discusses the results of an evaluation of the imaging facilities from this perspective.
