With ultrasound monitoring, analysis of the behavior of uterine leiomyomas (fibroids) and their impact on the course of pregnancy was undertaken in a group of 113 patients. Fibroid size changes were analyzed on the basis of trimesters. In the second trimester, smaller fibroids increased in size, whereas larger fibroids decreased in size. In the third(More)
The Society for Computer Applications in Radiology (SCAR) Transforming the Radiological Interpretation Process (TRIP™) Initiative aims to spearhead research, education, and discovery of innovative solutions to address the problem of information and image data overload. The initiative will foster interdisciplinary research on technological, environmental and(More)
Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) have become important components of many radiology departments around the world. These systems are expected to make the departments more efficient, reduce operating costs, and improve the communication between radiologist and referring physician. Yet, many departments have not yet embraced PACS or have(More)
Image communication is an important component in picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and teleradiology applications. Currently, local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs) use different technologies for image communication. Asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) is an emerging technology that can be used for both LANs and WANs. This(More)
The clinical efficacy and physicians' assessment of a medical image management system (MIMS) for chest images that involved the medical intensive care unit (MICU) and the radiology department were evaluated. A token-passing fiber-optic network was implemented to connect display stations in the MICU and in the chest reading area in the radiology department(More)
Early picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) were characterized by the use of very expensive hardware devices, cumbersome display stations, duplication of database content, lack of interfaces to other clinical information systems, and immaturity in their understanding of the folder manager concepts and workflow reengineering. They were(More)
This report describes the authors' experience in the design and implementation of two large scale picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) during the past 10 years. The first system, which is in daily clinical operation was developed at University of California, Los Angeles from 1983 to 1992. The second system, which continues evolving, has been(More)
