The RPI IGIPS facility provides a flexibility of operation not offered by many larger systems. The cost is kept moderate by the use of a minicomputer as central processor. The cost of all basic image processing peripheral devices described here is less than that of the VarianIDIIOM combination. The existing IO data controllers and graphics capabilities and the proposed operating system will provide a flexible basic system which should not be outmoded as new IO devices and specialized processors are interfaced. The system resolution 512x512, though less than that of some larger facilities has not been found restrictive for basic research into image properties. Computing power is sufficient to perform most applications in a very reasonable amount of processing time.
