Paper Abstract

The integrated combination of images from different modalities (signal, data, and text) yields a qualitative finding or helps with therapy. The communication medium ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) supports the integration of different communication forms to handle integrated information remotely. ISDN is therefore well suited to joint processing possibilities in the field of groupware for remote diagnosis, collective surgical planning, joint archiving, remote expert-guided training and teaching. This paper reports the functionality of groupware and the implementation of standards in specific software and conceptional levels to realize manufacturer independence for workstations. For practical reasons and for conformance tests the concept of journaling is used.
