In this paper, we present a simulation study of a browsing system involving radiological image servers. The proposed IEEE 802.6 DQDB MAN standard is designated as the computer network to transfer radiological images from file servers to medical workstations, and to simultaneously support real time voice communications. Storage and transmission of original raster scanned images and images compressed according to pyramid data structures are considered. Different types of browsing as well as various image sizes and bit rates in the DQDB MAN are also compared. The elapsed time, measured from the time an image request is issued until the image is displayed on the monitor, is the parameter considered to evaluate the system performance. Simulation results show that image browsing can be supported by the DQDB MAN.
