IS & C system and file protection mechanism.

Author information

  • 1Imaging Science and Engineering Laboratory, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Yokohama, Japan.


This paper reports a new extension of IS & C (Image Save And Carry) project. Because IS & C is an off-line system and requires full compatibility so as to enable medical data interchange with ease among hospitals and clinics, specifications that are indispensable for compatibility have been standardized by the IS & C committee. The IS & C system is supposed to be used in medicine, so the file protection mechanism for the security of the recorded files has been also developed. The characteristics of IS & C volume and file structure and the second national project being carried out in National Cancer Center Hospital are briefly explained as well.
