Bottom Line: A lightweight client site is considered adequate, because the server site of the architecture provides clients with service interfaces through the web as well as invulnerable space for temporary storage, called as User Domains, so that users fulfill their applications' tasks.The proposed teleradiology architecture is pilot implemented using mainly Java-based technologies and is evaluated by engineers in collaboration with doctors.The new architecture ensures flexibility in access, user mobility, and enhanced data security.

ABSTRACT
Multiprotocol medical imaging communication through the Internet is more flexible than the tight DICOM transfers. This paper introduces a modular multiprotocol teleradiology architecture that integrates DICOM and common Internet services (based on web, FTP, and E-mail) into a unique operational domain. The extended WADO service (a web extension of DICOM) and the other proposed services allow access to all levels of the DICOM information hierarchy as opposed to solely Object level. A lightweight client site is considered adequate, because the server site of the architecture provides clients with service interfaces through the web as well as invulnerable space for temporary storage, called as User Domains, so that users fulfill their applications' tasks. The proposed teleradiology architecture is pilot implemented using mainly Java-based technologies and is evaluated by engineers in collaboration with doctors. The new architecture ensures flexibility in access, user mobility, and enhanced data security.

Mentions: The Application Server is implemented to handle the whole of the teleradiology platform services provided to the client tier except from the DICOM server modules and FTP server modules. The modules of services, which are integrated into the Application Server, are implemented with Java libraries, JSPs, Java applets embedded in JSPs, and JavaBeans and are integrated into the Web-based Applications, deployed within this server. The Web-based Applications support all interactions between the Application Server and the client tier through the distinguished presentation (static) and application logic (dynamic) parts of the web pages (Figures 4 and 5). Java applets, embedded in JSPs, are used only for the implementation of the DICOM View service (Figure 6).
