Abstract

The prompt delivery of biomedical images for emergency diagnosis purpose is an important issue in health care organizations. This paper is aimed a developing class of algorithms to view and manipulate medical images on mobile devices and mainly PDA handhelds. We illustrate our method on human brain scans to view: 2-D single medical imaging scans, multi frames/slices medical imaging scans, internal 3-D anatomical details of a simulated straight line-cut, and the reconstruction of the original scanned object e.g. the original head image.
