1 DICOM INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE & SEMINAR Oct 9-11, 2010 Rio de Janeiro, Brazil WADO: a useful tool for remote visualization of large DICOM files Bmed. Eng. Pedro Pablo Escobar Fac. Of Engineering / Univ. Nac.del Centro Health Technologies Group

2 Introduction Increased digital medical equipment availability that produce DICOM images Applications for Computer-Aided Diagnosis (CAD) Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS)

3 Web-PACS Enable to query PACS server from a Web Site Only need a WEB browser

4 Medical images Web Viewer Web browsers do not have capacity to display DICOM studies Web-PACS includes DICOM viewer Java, Flash, ActiveX

5 Medical images Web Viewer Time-to-display (TTD) Lossless Compression 1:3 Lossy Compression 1:100 Progressive image transmission (PIT) Deployment

6 Dcm-Ar: System Architecture WADO (Web Access DICOM Objects) Easy Web PACS Viewer integration

7 Dcm-Ar Client Developed in OpenLaszlo -> Flash App. Has implemented the PIT strategy

8 Dcm-Ar Client Image divided in fixed size tiles

9 Dcm-Ar Client IOPIT Interactive - Optimized PIT

10 Dcm-Ar Server Multithreads Java2EE Application. Use Dcm4Che library Run over Jetty Java Servlet Container Tasks: –get images from PACS –make image tiles –send to client requested data information and tiles –manage image data cache

11 Results Multiplatform system has developed Reduce TTD in: –14 times than RAW images –5 times than PNG (lossless) images E.g. Image 25Mb Bandwidth 512kbps ~=64 kb/s Raw400s~= 06:40 PNG80s~= 01:20 IOPIT26s~= 00:26

12 Future Works Development of Web-PACS viewer using WADO TTD strongly reduced -> IOPIT technique Suitable solution for: –rural areas with narrow Internet connections –emergency or disasters situations –remote online diagnostics Future works Build generic WEB-PACS that work with any DICOM PACS server Adapt the viewer solution for mobile devices

13 Future Works Thank You... PD1: Apologizes for my rude english... PD2: Rio is a great place for a congress PD3: you can ask me whatever you want... probably I do not have all the answers, but I can give you my address :)
