Abstract

In the past, many of the medical information produced by hospitals (such as medical records or imagery) have had trouble being transferred from place to place; the main reason for this being the fference in the many formats that are used by each and every brand. With the development of the ages, the need for exchange of medical information has increased. Thus, imagery medical information uses the DICOM (Digital Image and Communication in Medicine) standard. The goal of this study is to establish a reformatting interface using the DICOM file management system to transfer paper-based records into DICOM format. Once in DICOM format, these records can then be sent to the DICOM server so that they may be accessed via the DICOM Viewer cross hospitals. This study also aims to transform text information into DICOM format so that files may be exchanged with other hospitals through DICOM's secure system so that medical records can be incorporated into hospitals' image systems to form a congregation of hospital resources.
