Abstract
This paper describes deployment of a Medical Doctor's Workstation (MDWS) hosting access to the Institute's radiology image and information system testbed. On-line acquisition of CT, MR and CR images for the physician's patients was supported. JPEG-compressed images reduced image data communications requirements by a factor of ten. Image interpretation at the remote site was supported by access to on-line radiology reports. The communications link to the MDWS was provided by a pair of Combinet ethernet-to-ISDN bridges interfaced to a basic rate (two B channel) ISDN line. Results of two successive trials in a referring physician's office are reported, along with the steps taken to improve limitations identified by the system's user.
