Abstract

A computer-based system was developed to handle information and endoscopic images in a clinical setting. The system is based on an 80286 AT computer whose topology includes a 16-bit color image capture/display graphics adapter and a 256 gray scale 8-bit digital image analysis processor. Using its color capabilities, one may initiate a picture database of patient's endoscopic images, x rays, and relevant clinical data. The computer-based imaging system allows instant access to this information and minimizes subjective evaluation, improving comparison and follow-up of treatments in a more objective manner. The image analysis components permit digital characterization of lesions, which allows online measurements and image enhancement. This is a cost-effective method of handling information and images in the clinical setting, facilitating endoscopic management and follow-up of the patient with gastrointestinal disease, as well as an effective research and teaching tool.
