Supplement 23 to Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) is an introduction to the structured reporting (SR) classes, which are used for transmission and storage of clinical documents. The SR classes fully support both conventional free-text reports and structured information, thus enhancing the precision, clarity, and value of clinical(More)
The brain exhibits limited capacity for spontaneous restoration of lost motor functions after stroke. Rehabilitation is the prevailing clinical approach to augment functional recovery, but the scientific basis is poorly understood. Here, we show nearly full recovery of skilled forelimb functions in rats with large strokes when a growth-promoting(More)
We assessed whether a clinical dose of the anti-inflammatory drug methylprednisolone (MP) given to adult mice acutely after spinal cord injury (SCI) influences spinal cord or hippocampal progenitor cells. Mice underwent a thoracic dorsal hemisection of the spinal cord and received 30 mg/kg MP immediately and 24 h post-lesion. 5-Bromo-2-deoxyuridine (BrdU)(More)
This paper proceeds from the definition of teleradiology. It identifies three different generations of teleradiology systems and also includes those systems that are not regarded as teleradiology systems by the authors. A list of requirements pertinent to users of first generation teleradiology systems is introduced. Most of the requirements have been(More)
Medical images are currently created digitally and stored in the radiology department's picture archiving and communication system (PACS). Reports are usually stored in the electronic patient record (EPR) of other information systems, such as the radiology information system (RIS) or the hospital information system (HIS). But high-quality service can only(More)
For the connection of several partners to a Dicom-e-mail based teleradiology network concepts were developed to allow the integration of different teleradiology applications. The organisational and technical needs for such an integration were analysed. More than 60 institutions including 23 hospitals in the Rhein-Neckar-Region, Germany were connected. The(More)
This paper describes the ongoing work on mobile teleradiology systems in the EC-funded project MTM. The current development is based on the CHILI software architecture which provides a PACS and teleradiology infrastructure. The authors collected user requirements in a first step. Appropriate hardware has been selected based on these requirements. Dedicated(More)
This paper introduces requirements on Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) targeted for medical use. Special attention has been given to the requirements within medical imaging departments. The gathering of data was done by a questionnaire that was filled in by medical staff from Spain and Germany. The Multimedia Terminal Mobile (MTM) project is an EC funded(More)

The goal of this project was to plan and establish a teleradiology network to include all hospitals on the island of Greenland, consisting of 15 district hospitals and one central hospital (Queen Ingrid's Hospital) in the capital city of Nuuk. All medical images produced in Greenland should be stored in a central PACS where they can be accessed by all(More)
