Paper Abstract

Requirements for the transmission and automatic compaction of complex imagery on local area networks is a rapidly developing field, driven by the needs of industry, commerce and medicine who require image based data on existing LAN computing systems. This paper describes an image processing accelerator architecture for application in the field of pictorial archiving and communication systems (PACS). The image handling system is designed to speed-up the performance of personal computers, and is being tested using data derived from endoscopic examination of patients attending the outpatient clinic in the department of Ear, Nose and Throat of a local hospital.
