Current digital video archiving and networking systems are not well suited for high bandwidth echocardiography applications. We discuss an application of a structured hypermedia network system to archiving and management of digital echocardiography records. The server technology used in this project was based on Hyper-G information system. IT was demonstrated that a distributed echocardiography hypermedia record can be navigated hierarchically, by following hyperlinks (browsing) and by a search utility. A record integrity was preserved by strict enforcement of bi-directional linking between the objects within a domain. Distinct features of the discussed hypermedia network are patient centered hypermedia data model, link database and record input, access and retrieval facilities.
