Paper Abstract

The Clinical Radiology Imaging System (CRIS) developed in the UCLA Image Processing Laboratory (IPL) is designed to allow radiologists, clinicians, and technologists to review and manipulate radiological images in digital form on a multiple viewing station (MVS). The system is composed of a multiple viewing station located at a clinical site and a centralized computer system consisting of a VAX-11/750 minicomputer, a Gould/DeAnza IP8500 image processor, and optical and magnetic disk storage. A broadband network allows video and digital communication between the remote clinical site and the IPL research laboratory. The station allows the real-time presentation of six 512x512x8 bit images from any combination of CT, MRI, DF, ultrasound, and digitized radiographs. The user interacts with the system by way of menus, icons, and a trackball. The CRIS system has been implemented in the Pediatric Radiology Section of the UCLA Medical Center. This paper describes the hardware and software architecture of the system and some early clinical experience.
