We examine the entire imaging chain, from acquisition to interpretation and storage, and indicate the opportunities for applying state-of-the-art techniques throughout that chain. Implications for quality and cost of care, including the impact on what is considered to be the standard of care, are discussed. Attention is drawn to the complementary roles played by large databases on one hand, and powerful comparative and quantitative methods on the other. The relevance of well-designed user interfaces, and of psychovisual considerations, is indicated, and their interaction with various compression algorithms is discussed. The benefit to diagnosis of knowledge-based approaches is considered.
