Abstract
Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) has standardized structure reports (SR) to fully support conventional free-text reports, images, and structured information, thus enhancing the precision, clarity, and value of clinical documents. The SR standard provides the capacity to link key images, region of interest within images, and measurement as result of Computer-Aided Diagnosis (CAD) process. Accordingly, SR bridges the traditional gap between CAD and PACS. Last year we presented an open and universal CAD-PACS integration toolkit that could seamlessly integrate standalone Computer-Aided Diagnosis (CAD) workstations with a clinical PACS based on Structure Report (SR) and IHE Post-Processing. In this presentation, we illustrate the workflow and procedures of CAD-PACS integration by showing examples from some available CAD applications using the toolkit. This proper integration will improve usage of the CAD applications for more accurate analysis and faster assessment in the clinical decisionmaking process.
