Paper Abstract

Digital real-time storage of image sequences has been increasingly in demand for medical imaging applications. This paper describes the incorporation of such a real-time digital video storage subsystem into an image processor architecture. The system can store up to 2250 frames of 512 x 512 x 8 bits resolution. The acquired or processed real-time images can be displayed at slow, normal, or fast motion speeds. Alternatively, each frame can be randomly accessed. The disk controller contains an on-board microprocessor to off-load controlling and sequencing tasks from the system. Examined here are general system architecture, disk storage and controller design, and the role of real-time image sequence storage and retrieval in medical imaging and other applications.
