We present a medical image and medical record database for the storage, research,transmission, and evaluation of medical images, as well as tele-medicine applications.
Any medical image from a source that supports the DICOM standard can be stored and
accessed, as well as associated analysis and annotations. Information and image retrieval
can be done based on patient info, date, doctor’s annotations, features in the images, or a
spatial combination of features. Secure access and transmission is addressed for tele-
medicine applications. This database application follows all HIPAA regulations.
