We have developed the DICOM.-8 digital imaging computer for video image acquisition, processing and display. It is a low-cost mobile systems based on a Z80 microcomputer which controls access to two 512 x 512 x 8-bit image planes through a real-time video arithmetic unit. Image presentation capabilities include orthographic images, isometric plots with hidden-line suppression, real-time mask subtraction, binocular red/green stereo, and volumetric imaging with both geometrical and density windows under operator interactive control. Examples are shown for multiplane series of CT images.
