Paper Abstract

A chronic barrier to rapid progress in image processing and pattern recognition research is the lack of a universal and facile method of transferring image data between different facilities. Comparison of different approaches and algorithms on a common data base is often the only means for establishing the validity of results. Data collected under known recording conditions is mandatory for improvement of analytic methodology, yet such valuable data is costly and time consuming to obtain. Therefore, the sharing and exchange of image data may be expendient. The proliferation of different image data formats has compouned the problem of exchange. The establishement of logical formats and standards for images and image data headers is the first step towards dissolving this barrier. This paper presents initial recommendations of the IEEE Computer Society PAMI (Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence) and CompMed (Computational Medicine) Technical Committees' Database Subcommittees on the first of a series of digital image data standards.
