Workstations, Picture Archiving and Communication System, Three-Dimensional Image
Definition : Picture archiving and communication systems workstations designed to analyze, process, and store high-resolution volumetric digital images and data, providing three-dimensional (3-D) images and segmentation. These workstations can process images from several different diagnostic imaging systems, including computed radiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasound scanners. Three-dimensional workstations typically consist of a high-speed digital computer, high-definition printers, very-high-capacity optical/magnetic disks, input and output devices, and data/image processors; they usually follow the instructions of specialized software for rapid and straightforward manipulation of images. The main feature of the software is, in addition to the display of 3-D images, its capability for segmentation and measurement of tumors, lesions, and aneurysms using real-time multiplanar reformatting of the images; the software also permits the display of bone-free images facilitating the visualization of vessels and other soft tissue (e.g., angiograms).
