Abstract :

The 80th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) featured demonstrations of the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard and Internet services. The RSNA was held in Chicago in late Nov 1994. Attendees were given personalized digitized photos, which were used by the 40 exhibitors to demonstrate how the DICOM standard was enabling vendors to create products that are compatible industry-wide. The Internet and medical technology was another hot topic at the conference. The National Library of Medicine demonstrated its massive 3D cadaver. The body of a 39 year-old man was painstakingly photographed and digitized using CT, X-ray and MR technology. The information is available for free over the Internet, but the complete body requires two-weeks to download and 15GB of hard disk space.
