  • CADANS-design and implementation of a data network for cardiology-a progress report

    The Cardiology Data Network Structure (CADANS) (of G.T. Meester et al., 1987) has entered a pilot prototype study phase. This Netherlands data communication network for cardiological research is being installed in a pilot configuration in eight university cardiac departments. Its testing and evaluation are to be carried out during 1989 and 1990 in the context of a large cooperative cardiological research project involving the assessment of coronary angioplasty. The actual network embraces about 35 workstations, all of them intelligent. The software systems in the pilot study support database management, statistical analysis, data communication, and word processing for reporting. The configuration consists of a

  • PACS for cardiology-perspective or fiction?

    The storage of angiographic imaging data on picture archive and communication systems (PACS) is discussed. The goal is to compact all medically relevant data without any information loss and discard irrelevant or redundant information. Therefore, a concept is proposed that introduces a novel workplace for the cardiologist: the movie cutting report workstation, a place to select the medically relevant images from the total sequence in view of all the other data available. The essential data, compacted by a SPI (Standard Product Interconnect) standardized image sequence compression and stored under SPI management, can fit both technical restrictions and practical useability, provided that viewing stations can offer a unique and easy human interface with a free expandable display option for viewing arbitrary associated data.<<ETX>>

  • A LAN system for the management of an outpatient cardiology clinic

    The features of a computerized system for the management of an outpatient cardiology clinic are described. The local area network (LAN) is based on the ETHERNET standard, with a minicomputer Unisys 5000/95 as the central unit and several PCs and videoterminals as workstations. The operating systems are UNIX System V.3 and MS-DOS. The relational database management system (RDBMS) is ORACLE, and for data analysis and retrieval the SQL-Plus language is used. The PCs can act as independent workstations, using the MS-DOS operating system and standard software packages for office automation. The program manages appointments, patient records, and laboratory test reports.<<ETX>>

  • Integrated access to function test results from within a cardiology information system

    A dedicated cardiology information system (CARIS) has been developed in our department to record all information pertaining to studies performed in the cathlab and pacemaker lab. However, information stored in other systems in the cardiac function lab was not available in CARIS. This includes ECGs (rest ECGs, stress ECGs and Holter ECGs), and reports from echo studies and stress ECG studies. Data obtained from these functional studies are stored in various database systems. For each of these systems a different, dedicated interface was developed to allow the cardiologist to obtain access to the data from within CARIS. These results show that integration of all information available in the cardiology department is feasible. Presently, we are developing a completely new version of CARIS that will allow optimal integration of cardiology based information (as well as in the CARIS database, as in separate systems) with data in the hospital information system.

  • Clinical and managerial applications of a relational database for a multi-centered pediatric cardiology service

    In Northern Ireland children suffering from congenital heart disease are treated through the Regional Paediatric Cardiology Service. A computerized database system has been implemented, using the relational database management system Oracle, to record information on all the patients seen by the service. The authors describe the structure and purpose of the data recorded; they identify and illustrate the types of report which can be produced. An overview of the equipment used and its links to other computer facilities is given. At present information is held on almost 7000 patients. The purpose of the database is to provide clinical and management information for the cardiology service.<<ETX>>

  • When rats meet hearts: a gopher information server for cardiology

    At the Department of Cardiology of the University of Vienna Medical School the authors have initiated a feasibility study to explore the advantages and limitations of a public access electronic information system. An Internet gopher information server VIE-CARGO that provides material related to clinical cardiology has been installed on a NeXT workstation (Internet address: gopher.kard akhwien.ac.at). The present system supports browsing and fulltext search of selected articles, abstracts of major cardiology journals, position papers, guidelines, reports of multicenter studies, and meeting highlights. It also includes pointers to other related Internet resources, including anonymous ftp archives and interactive access to library catalogues, such as the US National Library of Congress. Moreover, sample images and a drug database are to be included in the authors' prototype system. The gopher server also offers a forum for the exchange of news items and statements from national and international societies in the field of cardiology. Directions of future developments may include the upgrade to a hypermedia server based on the World-Wide Web system and the implementation of an interactive text based virtual reality server.<<ETX>>

  • Structure of a multidimensional relational database optimized for daily clinical use and decision support in cardiology departments

    To provide a friendly interface, but also complete freedom in datapaths, an original function-oriented application based on a relational model is developed. Patient information is spread in different records according to functions: from clinical history to diagnostic and interventional procedures. Data are collected while generated and clinical reports are provided. Additionally data produced by Holter and stress-test electrocardiogram analyzers are directly uploaded. More than 140 forms and reports are available. The application is designed over a structured data entry. Users view records along any 'route' dynamically linking all data. Decision support procedures are also embedded. Graphic libraries integrate the report layout. The application runs on a microcomputer network and uses both real and protected CPU modes. Multiuser control is also implemented.<<ETX>>

  • Efficient performance of neural network models as artificial intelligence prediction tools in cardiology

    Pattern generalization capabilities of neural networks are evaluated in two models: (1) prediction of coronary lesions from myocardial perfusion SPECT data; and (2) determination of comments to stress test results (EST). The SPECT network correctly predicted the stenosed/occluded vessel in all single- vessel disease cases, while the success rate was 83% for multi-vessel diseases. The EST network provided 106/125 correct interpretations. It is concluded that the functional success on software simulated neural networks is derived from the underlying computing model. Input values are comparable to multidimensional vectors since they are sequences of values wherein value position in the sequence is as important as the value itself. Interneural connections are numerical matrices instead. Network knowledge is included in the matrices that define each particular network. This structure allows some generalization ability since the response can always be computed for unexpected or incomplete data clusters.<<ETX>>
