An Efficient Medical Workstation for the Clinical Review of Medical Image Data (PACS systems)

Today's health care produces vast amounts of patient image data that need to be clinically analyzed on a daily basis. Technology must be provided that facilitates the management and analysis of this datastream in the most efficient and accurate way. The benefits are clear: better utilization of hospital equipment, better utilization of health care personnel, and most importantly, better and more effective service to the patient. A few years back, I was part of a design team that produced a prototype of such a medical workstation.
The paper "A medical workstation for the display and analysis of multi-frame digital cineradiographic data," (Computers in Medicine and Biology, vol.26, no. 5, pp. 385-400, 1996) has more info on this effort.
