OBJECTIVE. The World-Wide Web on the Internet enables an exchange of multimedia information among remote desktop computers. Therefore, a teleradiology system using the Web would allow remote consultation with expert radiologists. Our objective was to establish a Web-based prototype system for image interpretation. CONCLUSION. Our system allows a physician to transmit clinically useful images to an expert radiologist at a different location, who can see them on a Web browser and discuss diagnoses with the physician.
