Paper Abstract

An extension of the data base language SQL is described which provides tools for handling images in an interactive environment. It is implemented in a prototype pictorial information system for radiology. The properties of the language are demonstrated with several examples. It is claimed that extending the facilities of a conventional DBMS yields an economic and powerful tool for uniform management of image and non-image data in a pictorial information system.
