Paper Abstract

Multimedia radiological reports tie together radiographic images and operations on these images with text, voice or graphical annotation. The result is an animated presentation of the radiological examination report. A temporal representation for a multimedia radiological report is introduced which describes the temporal behaviour of the animated report. The temporal behaviour specifies the synchronization requirements for the coordinated presentation of the multimedia report components. The temporal behaviour is encoded in a temporal semantic network which is a network of temporally ordered nodes, where each node represents some primitive behaviour. Automatic creation of the multimedia radiological report consists of the capture, interpretation and storage of the temporal semantics of the radiologist's reporting session in terms of a set of primitive behaviours. Automatic playback of the multimedia radiological report is the orderly traversal of the temporal semantic network, invoking the behaviour associated with each of the nodes in the temporal order described by the interconnecting arcs.
