Paper Abstract

Concepts of Data Base Management Systems (DBMS) have not yet been widely used for medical image data bases. At the Hamburg University Hospital these concepts are applied to design an image data base for a radiological department. A scenario is described in terms of conventional data base design techniques and thus a conceptual schema is derived. This schema is modelled by the relational data model. For the implementation of the model we used the relational DBMS ORACLE. The software structure has two layers: one which extends the data base language to the needs of image management and another one which provides interaction with the data base in a pictorial context. The properties of the designed system are discussed and the state of implementation is outlined.
