Lim, Y.S., Feng, D.D. and Cai, T.W.

    The overall objective of this paper is to show the development of a web-based collaborative system for medical image analysis and diagnosis that is affordable, usable, reliable and efficient for medical area. The system consists of four components that are chat system, online image manipulation system, message board and server system. To carry out the objective of the system, various method are applied such as JAVA applet which is system independent using a virtual machine technology, server and client network model, distributed data structure to manage data for multi-users and image manipulation using Java Awt Graphics library. This system was developed and tested to provide better interface for CSCW (Computer Supported Collaborative Work) in medical area. The collaborative system for medical image analysis and diagnosis being able to be used via Internet provides system independence, convenience and efficiencies.
