Paper Abstract

ImprocRAD is a software package for processing medical images generated by a radiology department. We first give a brief overview of the package and its components. In the context of the overview, we describe the components that we use for tasks related to mammogram display. These tasks are: Rapid display of mammogram image sets (240 Mbytes simultaneously memory resident) Re-sampling mammograms (speed vs. quality including full 2D cubic MMSE) Comparison of processing results (combining image matching with subtraction and difference metrics) Real-time processing including MTF compensation, region of interest showing full resolution Automated film-scanner calibration (an automated user interface for generating lookup tables) Timing and optimization tools (a stopwatch tool, trouble shooting window) In addition we will briefly describe the workstation we are using for mammogram display.
