1 July 1992 Concept and design considerations for an electronic film library

A fast, easy-to-use, manufacturer-non-specific archival display and filming system was assembled and tested in the clinical environment. In this system, character recognition software decodes patient identification information and the type of examination for the archival data base in a manner that is transparent to the operator. Images are stored on an optical disk jukebox and can be retrieved to soft display for review and/or reprinting. Preliminary clinical evaluations with the system connected to one and/or two CT scanners clearly indicate that such a concept can successfully replace and/or serve as a backup to conventional film libraries. It can easily be attached to multiple devices (currently three) that are manufactured by the same or different vendors. Technologist and physician responses to the system have been favorable.
