15 May 1994 Oral reporting system in an IS&C environment
Author Affiliations +
An radiologic reporting system by means of oral presentation in an IS&C (Image Save and Carry) environment has been developed and tested. The rewritable and compact magneto- optical disk (MOD) according to the standard specification of IS&C filing format is employed to store oral diagnostic reports together with read radiologic images. The MOD of 5.25 inches in diameter has 600 MB memory capacity. Advantages of the system are: simultaneous retrieval of oral reports and the images which a radiologist interpreted, and capability of media circulation in addition to the function of filing. Thus the MOD in our IS&C environment has a multimedia function of both off-line communication and filing. When medical images are interpreted and oral presentations are registered, the digitized oral reports and the digitized images are filed to the MOD automatically. Referring physicians can get the diagnostic reports by oral speech and can see the images at the same time in front of personal computer. Furthermore, integration with a voice recognition machine is being tried in our experiment.
