Paper Abstract

This paper describes a remote real-time PACS-based telemedicine platform for clinical and diagnostic services delivered at different care settings where the physicians, specialists and scientists may attend. In fact, the platform aims to provide a PACS-based telemedicine framework for different medical image services such as segmentation, registration and specifically high-quality 3D visualization. The proposed approach offers services which are not only widely accessible and real-time, but are also secure and cost-effective. In addition, the proposed platform has the ability to bring in a realtime, ubiquitous, collaborative, interactive meeting environment supporting 3D visualization for consultations, which has not been well addressed with the current PACS-based applications. Using this ability, physicians and specialists can consult with each other at separate places and it is especially helpful for settings, where there is no specialist or the number of specialists is not enough to handle all the available cases. Furthermore, the proposed platform can be used as a rich resource for clinical research studies as well as for academic purposes.
