Abstract : The Army Medical Imaging System (ARMIS) would use optical data cards, discs and small computers to perform the required functions of image acquisition, archiving, duplicating, reporting and scheduling. A study done under a previous contract, DAMD17-86-C-6039, determined the optimal configuration of a filmless medical imaging system based on stimulable x-ray phosphors and optical data cards. Advantages of the system would be elimination of film, development chemicals, and the need for water; reduction of power requirements, bulk media, archive volume and cost per image. Items to be delivered are demonstration models of a stimulable phosphor screen laser scanner, an image acquisition workstation, and an optical digital data card based independent viewer. Subcontractor bids for the stimulable phosphor scanner were far higher than original estimates solicited from potential bidders prior to the award of this contract. As a result, the scope of this contract was limited to the development of an imaging workstation-based on the Apple Macintosh, an independent viewer to display the contents of optical data cards and software techniques for image data compression and transmission.
