Abstract [en]

This paper discusses the problems experienced in sharing radiological images and pathological samples between hos- pitals. Despite the introduction of DICOM standards for medical imaging, difference are reported in the adoption of this standard by different vendors. Furthermore the stan- dard is under constant review and is being continually up- dated. These updates mean that imaging conducted un- der the newer standards are often not readable in older sys- tems. Transmission of images, while theoretically possible, is not practically implemented because of shortcomings in networks, deterioration of resolution on transmitted images and issues of maintaining text or voice based records with an associated image. There are also many obstacles to sharing because of differences in local imaging protocols. While digital imaging is not in widespread use for pathology samples, local processing protocols and techniques regularly prove ob- stacles to sharing patient pathological data. Co-ordination of both radiology and pathology samples is the most impor- tant challenge to sharing this information among hospitals and institutions. This paper describes work in progress to make a comprehensive list of obstacles to sharing radiolog- ical image sets and pathological material between referring doctors and specialists. Issues of standards, protocols, pro- cedures and techniques in pathology and radiology are explained.
