Experimental workstations for oral reporting and synchronized image filing have been developed and evaluated by radiologists and referring physicians. The file media is a 5.25-inch rewritable magneto-optical disk of 600-Mb capacity whose file format is in accordance with the IS & C specification. The results of evaluation tell that this system is superior to other existing methods of the same kind such as transcribing, dictating, handwriting, typewriting and key selections. The most significant advantage of the system is that images and their interpretation are never separated. The first practical application to the teaching file and the teaching conference is contemplated in the Osaka University Hospital. This system is a complete digital system in terms of images, voices and demographic data, so that on-line transmission, off-line communication or filing to any database will be easily realized in a PACS environment. We are developing an integrated system of a speech recognizer connected to this digitized oral system. © 1994.
