Paper Abstract

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a respiratory illness that had been reported in Asia, North America, and Europe in last spring. Most of the China cases of SARS have occurred by infection in hospitals or among travelers. To protect the physicians, experts and nurses from the SARS during the diagnosis and treatment procedures, the infection control mechanisms were built in SARS hospitals. We built a Web-based interactive teleradiology system to assist the radiologists and physicians both in side and out side control area to make image diagnosis. The system consists of three major components: DICOM gateway (GW), Web-based image repository server (Server), and Web-based DICOM viewer (Viewer). This system was installed and integrated with CR, CT and the hospital information system (HIS) in Shanghai Xinhua hospital to provide image-based ePR functions for SARS consultation between the radiologists, physicians and experts inside and out side control area. The both users inside and out side the control area can use the system to process and manipulate the DICOM images interactively, and the system provide the remote control mechanism to synchronize their operations on images and display.
