Paper Abstract

A laboratory prototype system for archiving X-ray CT pictures on digital optical discs is being built up, which employs a TOMOSCAN T-310 CT system for picture generation, a TOMOSCAN stand-alone viewing console (SAVC) for picture retrieval and evaluation, and a Philips digital optical recorder (DOR) for mass picture storage. The picture store is implemented as a separated subsystem equipped with its own minicomputer for administration and control ('picture base'). Communication is made by using a high-speed data link. A superior picture management is performed by employing the existing radiologic data base system RADOS implemented on a separate further computer system. Convenient search routines are thus offered for picture retrieval, and links are made to patient records.
