Abstract : The overarching goal of this project is to pursue a broad experimental program in futuristic research focusing on digital pathology and telepathology applications and practice, with the primary consideration being military medicine. The following areas are being addressed: (1) 2-D and 3-D digital image acquisition and virtual slide (VS) systems development for pathology applications; (2) Evaluation and testing of workstations and operating systems for digital pathology applications; (3) Testing and demonstration of ATh technology for digital pathology and telepathology purposes; (4) Evaluation, specification, and testing of an appropriate Object-Oriented Database Management System (OODBMS) for digital pathology purposes; (5) Evaluation, testing, and recommendation of a hierarchical storage management system (HSM) for digital pathology image recovery for local and telepathology referral basis; (6) Integration of National Library of Medicine (NLM) medical language resources (e.g.UMLS and SNOMED) to pathology image files for content-based retrieval; (7) Recommendations for FY 1996.
