Paper Abstract

In this paper, we developed a new method of the document analysis technique to extract the patient information directly from the scanned image. This information can link with Radiology Information System (RIS) or Hospital Information System, and the scanned images can then be filed into database automatically. The efficiency this method offers can greatly simplify the image filing process and improve the user friendliness of the overall image digitization system. Moreover, it solves the automatic information input problem in a very economical way. We believe the success of this technique will benefit the development of the PACS and teleradiology.
