A satellite image transmission system has been installed between an orthopedic clinic in suburban Philadelphia and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in central Philadelphia. The two facilities are approximately 15 miles apart. Images are acquired with a laser film digitizer and transmitted over a Ku-Band satellite link. After receipt, the images are archived and sent to a Virtual Imaging VIEW-2000 workstation for display and interpretation. This paper addresses the software on the VIEW-2000, from a designer's point of view. The workstation software handles image retreival, image management and image display. User interaction is provided via a standard alphanumeric keyboard and a three-button mouse. Image manipulation includes rove, zoom, window/level and inverse intensity. Image sequencing logic facilitates radiologist interaction. Various enhancements are considered.
