Paper Abstract

For the major imaging disciplines as radiology, PACSystems are still very costly because of the large image volumes involved. However, for low resolution images PACS appears to be feasible and cost effective, using mass produced general purpose hardware. Because endoscopy images fall within this category the Rotterdam University Hospital and BAZIS (lateron HISCOM) started in 1993 the development of an experimental ENdoScopy Information System (ENSIS) consisting of functions for the image acquisition and multimedia reporting. A multimedia report consists of a selection of the images acquired, annotations, spoken comments and a textual report. In addition the system offers retrieval of completed multimedia endoscopy reports by authorized users throughout the hospital as part of the existing electronic medical record. The multimedia functions of ENSIS, are developed for personal computers running MSDOS using a Novell fileserver with optical disks. From September 1994 the system is in clinical operation and from that moment the majority of the examinations (6000 per year) have resulted in a multimedia report. In this paper we will describe the functionality and design of the system.
