Abstract

We developed a visual data analysis system that can easily manage a large volume of medical imaging data. This system can analyze sets of imaging data using general image processing methods, so that various kinds of medical imaging data such as ECG charts, X ray image films, and MRI images, can be processed. The system has a graphical user interface (GUI). A physician who is novice at the system can manipulate the imaging data intuitively by pull down menus, pop up menus and buttons within the window system. The system can run on a standard UNIX workstation which is faster and more powerful than most personal computers. The system needs an X window system/Motif and C compiler. These are standard system programs already available on most UNIX workstations. The source code of the system can be retrieved from our anonymous ftp site via Internet.
