This paper discusses our initial efforts to design and develop a digital mammography data warehouse to facilitate clinical and research activities. Data warehouse is a complete and consistent integration of data from many information sources. It enables users to explore the warehouse for various analysis and decision support purposes. We are designing an infra-structural information system by incorporating various kinds of breast imaging data, from a diversity of existing clinical systems, into a digital data warehouse. Various types of breast imaging data, including patient demographics, family history, digital mammography and radiological reports, will be acquired for the University of California San Francisco digital mammography PACS modules, as well as Radiological Information System.
