Paper Abstract

It is shown in the paper that nasopharyngeal carcinoma is commonly encountered in southeastern China and we, considering the urgent need to diagnose the tumor as early as possible and the lack of enough expert radiologists throughout the province, have launched a project to develop a teleconsultation systems with the expert radiologist center at the Zhejiang Cancer Hospital serving rural hospitals in Zhejiang Province. Our client/server teleconsultation system consists of three subsystems: a mini PACS-based Teleconsultation Expert Center, the remote referring physician's workstation and networking subsystem connecting not only LAN but also remote workstation. The software facilities include Preparation Manager, Archiving Manager, Consultation Manager, Report Wizard and Query Manager, all of which simulates a step of the traditional travel-based consultation. In this paper, we also discuss briefly the systems performance and future improvement consideration.
