A high-speed network driven by a set of ATM
(asynchronous transfer mode) switches in association with
CAD/DSP (computer aided diagnosis/detection and
digital signal processing) algorithms has been set up as
the architecture for lossless delivery of data to effectively
facilitate mammography detection and diagnosis.
Expanding diagnostics and treatment beyond the local
level potentially covering underserved areas will bring
better health care to a wider range of people at a
potentially reduced cost. This work describes the
Asynchronous Transfer Mode Teleradiology Network
(ATMTN) and the associated signal processing
algorithms that offers on-line, real time, more accurate
screening, detection and diagnosis of breast cancer.
ATMTN is a high-speed network integrated with DICOM
standards and CAD methods for digital mammography.
