Paper Abstract

In april 1987 a project started as part of a 2-year joint study agreement between IBM and the Section of Medical Informatics of Leiden University with substantial support of BAZIS and the Leiden University Hospital Department of Diagnostic Radiology. IBM provided us with an RT PC, a 32-bit, RISC-based workstation 1 as host, connected to the powerful 5085 Graphics Processor System. Based on experiments and study, IBM replaced the external 5085 system by a special internal imaging board (Megapel), supporting 1024 x 1024 resolution and 256 shades of grey on its attached display. In this paper the present experimental set-up will be described and analysed and suggestions for the direction of further development will be discussed.
