Since 1999, the Institute of Computer Science has been cooperating with a number of hospitals in the implementation of information and communication technologies in the field of acquisition, transmission, long-term archiving and display of digital medical image information. Collaboration is a series of coordinated activities and projects that led to the creation of an extensive archive of medical image information and their accessibility via a computer network. Information is gained in normal operation from diagnostic devices such as ultrasound, digital mammography, magnetic resonance, CT, RTG, and many others. The MeDiMed project creates the conditions for the widest possible access to and exchange of medical imaging data that arise or are already in existence but are only used to a limited extent or only for a short period of time (without archiving) using existing means and equipment of healthcare facilities.
“The aim of the MeDiMed project is to use the possibilities of current information technologies and medical informatics both for improving the quality of medical surgery and medical care as well as improving the conditions for medical research and teaching of students”Assoc.
