Paper Abstract

Two types of workstation are being developed at UCLA for neuroradiology a display workstation and a therapeutic workstation. The display station is used for review of images derived from neuroradiology examinations whereas the therapeutic station is for image analysis. The therapeutic workstation will be used to compare angiograms with CT and MR images and to calculate quantitative information from image sets. Parameters obtained by image analysis will be useful for planning and evaluation of interventional procedures. Current emphasis is on development of analysis tools for digital subtraction angiography. Digital densitometry and parametric imaging routines are being developed for analysis of DSA images of blood flow (with contrast injection) taken with a GE Digital Flouricon 5000 system. These routines include determination of vessel geometry regional blood volume flow rate and velocity. The starting point for software development is the CALIPSO (CALifornia Image Processing SOftware) package developed at UCLA for the Macintosh II. A Stellar GS2000 graphics mini-supercomputer will ultimately be used to allow rapid manipulation of images. The workstation will be connected to various imaging modalities through an Ethernet network. 1.
