Paper Abstract

The design of hospital and medical diagnostic centers for the 21st century will include medical image capture, formatting and display systems designed to support multiple modalities from a single computing environment. These systems will be based on an architectural approach allowing upgrades and modifications, as required by new technologies, applied to the current modalities or requirements for yet unbuilt modalities. Changes will be needed to incorporate new hardware and software. The need to maintain a cost effective operation dictates flexible, easily up-gradeable architectures. This paper presents an architecture for an integrated system that can be built today to serve the needs for the hospitals and medical centers of tomorrow. These systems will be totally independent from any one manufacturer, a cost effective solution to processing images from multiple modalities, and based on the maximum use of commercial- off-the-shelf hardware and software.
