Paper Abstract

Due to the increasing number of medical imaging modalities, the integration capacity of a PACS is necessary. Indeed, the PACS will lead the way in the introduction of advanced technology in the hospital. Among the elements that compose a PACS the elaboration of a software implemented in the workstation is the most essential part because this software realizes the interface between the user and the system. The introduction of a workstation in the hospital imposes a fundamental change in the work of radiologists and clinicians. This paper deals with the design and the development of a clinical workstation for pulmonary disease diagnostic. The usual working method of the clinician is taken as a reference for the design of the workstation. A software with image manipulating and processing facilities running in an X Window environment is described. The evaluation of the workstation is then undertaken in the service of pneumology of the pneumo-cardiologic hospital in Lyon, France. The conviviality and flexibility of the software is optimized in the function of the suggestions and criticism of the users.
