14 January 1982 Laser-Disc Storage For All Digital X-Ray Images In A Large Hospital
Author Affiliations +
In this paper we will discuss a plan for an experimental application in clinical context of optical disc storage in diagnostic radiology. First computerized tomography (CT) and ultra-sound (US), later digital vascular imaging (DVI , intravenous angiography) and new digital device images such as digital radiography and nuclear magnetic resonance (NPR) will be stored permanently in a digital way. This image data base must be considered as an extension of the already operational hospital information system (ZIS). Replacing the costly, unique, bulky and operation-intensive film in a versatile, fast access- fast relocatable digital manner has obvious advantages and intrinsic,but limited, disadvantages. The aim of this experiment will be to evaluate easeof use, reliability and economic aspects of laser-disc based picture archiving and communication in a clinical experiment.
