The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the importance of building a brain imaging registry (BIR) on top of existing medical information systems including Picture Archiving Communication Systems (PACS) environment. We describe the design framework for a cluster of data marts whose purpose is to provide clinicians and researchers efficient access to a large volume of raw and processed patient images and associated data originating from multiple operational systems over time and spread out across different hospital departments and laboratories. The framework is designed using object-oriented analysis and design methodology. The BIR data marts each contain complete image and textual data relating to patients with a particular disease.
