Paper Abstract

One of the key technologies in developing the picture archiving and communication system (PACS)is the method of presenting pictures. The pictures must be of sufficient quality to enable diagnosis and their presentation must be automatic so as not to interrupt doctors' concentration. The authors are developing a diagnostic work station (WS) which can solve these problems. In this study, we experimented on (1) a picture enhanement method for improving picture quality, and (2) a picture handling environment for simplifying operation. The results suggest that the YS should possess the intelligence to free doctors from complex operations.
