Abstract [en]

The evolution of equipments used in the medical imaging practice, from 3-tesla Magnetic Resonance (MR) units and 64-slice Computer Tomography (CT) systems to the latest generation of hybrid Positron Emission Tomography (PET)/CT technologies is fast producing a volume of images that threatens to overload the capacity of the interpreting radiologists. 

On the other hand multi-agents systems are being used in a wide variety of research and application fields. Our work concerns the development of a multi-agent system that enables a multi-display medical image diagnostic system. The multi-agent system architecture permits the system to grow (scalable) i.e., the number of displays according to the user’s available resources. There are two immediate benefits of this scalable feature: the possibility to use inexpensive hardware to build a cluster system and the real benefit for physicians is that the visualization area increases allowing for easier and faster navigation. In this way an increase in the display area can help a physician analyse and interpret more information in less time.
