Author Affiliations +
Current generation of picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) lacks the capabilities to permit content-based searches to be made on image data and to visualize and render 3D image data in a cost effective manner. The purpose of this research project is to investigate a framework that will combine the storage and communication components of PACS with the power of content-based image indexing and 3D visualization. This presentation will describe the integrated architecture and tools of our experimental system with examples taken from applications of neurological surgical planning and assessment of pediatric bone age.
