Paper Abstract

Building on the success of the MediaStation 5000 (MS5000) multimedia system which was developed in our laboratory in 1994, we have developed a prototype telemedicine workstation which is programmable and supports high-bandwidth telecommunications links to connect together many medical treatment facilities. The system can support various telemedicine and consultation functions to collaboratively transfer, manipulate, and view radiological images, image sequences, audio, and video. The requirements for a telemedicine workstation include high performance, flexibility, and upgradability. The unique components of our workstation include an advanced parallel processor, highly integrated multimedia support circuitry, high- speed network interface, and a graphical user interface. Each of these is a key ingredient to a successful telemedicine system.
