Paper Abstract

The authors have been using medical image filing system TOSHIBA TDIS-FILE as a teaching files archiving and viewing at University of Tokyo, Hospital, Department of Radiology. Image display on CRT was proven sufficient for the purpose of education for small groups of students, as well as residents. However, retrieval time for archived images, man-machine interface, and financial expenses are not in a satisfactory level yet. The authors also implemented flexible retrieval scheme for diagnostic codes, which has been proven sophisticated. These kinds of software utilities, as well as hardware evolution, are essential for this kind of instruments to be used as potential component of PACSystem. In our department, PACS project is being carried on. In the system, TOSHIBA AS3160 workstation (=SUN 3/160) handles all user interfaces including controls of medical image displays, examination data bases, and interface with HIS.
