Abstract

Medical diagnosis is an outcome got from a complex process that implies multiple inferences from sets of clinical information. A large body of research has been conducted to develop tools in order to aid analyzing the amount of clinical information. In this paper, a system - called CaseServer - is presented. It supports radiology teaching and research practices. The initial intention was to create an electronic and MIRC-compliant infrastructure to provide integrated and context-based access to all relevant patient data at the time of image interpretation. A successful implementation has integrated information collected from various sources. Furthermore, the application of role-based coupled with context-based principles to acquisition, organization, control, dissemination and use of clinical cases in teaching and research has brought out a multipurpose infrastructure which promotes and makes feasible the usage of clinical cases within academic and research communities.
