The Development of a Command Language and Meta-Language in Nuclear Medicine Processing System, Using Forth



A priori, the requirements of flexibility versus ease of use seem antagonistic in dedicated scintigraphic computer systems. This follows from the fact that flexibility is most often achieved by multiplicity of options. In many cases, the flow through the options is directed by decision trees or menus. which have the major disadvantage of requiring multiple, and repetitive answers to often obscure questions. Alternatively the direct call to the program library requires that the operator remember the name of all available programs, which are often mnemonic by courtesy only.
