Abstract:

WE WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBLITY OF PROVIDING AN INFORMATION RESOURCE FOR DERMATOLOGY (SKIN CANCER, IN PARTICULAR) ON OPTICAL DISC. WE HAVE ALREADY DEVELOPED DATABASES THAT WOULD BE GERMANE TO SUCH A PRODUCT, AND HAVE IDENTIFIED PUBLIC DOMAIN DATABASES AND TEXTBOOKS THAT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE. NCI HAS AMASSED A SUITABLE COLLECTION OF IMAGES STORED AS PHOTOGRAPHS, LASERDISC ANALOG FILES AND DIGITAL FILES. ISG AND NCI HAVE PREVIOUSLY WORKED TOGETHER IN EXPLORING THE UTILITY OF CD-ROM AS A MEDIUM FOR DISTRIBUTION OF DERMATOLOGIC INFORMATION. BASED ON THESE EXTENSIVE RESOURCES AND PRIOR JOINT EFFORT, THE PROJECT TEAM BELIEVES THAT PHASE I CAN ATTAIN THE AMBITIOUS GOAL OF DEMONSTRATING AN OPERATIONAL MULTI-MEDIA OPTICAL DISC PROTOTYPE SYSTEM. THOUGHDATABASES HAVE BEEN STORED ON CD-ROM MANY TIMES, THIS SOURCE REQUIRES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FULLY INTEGRATED COLLECTION OF TEXT (RANGING FROM BIBLIOGRAPHIC TO STRUCTURE TO FULL-TEST) AND HIGH-QUALITY IMAGES ON OPTICAL DISC UNDER THE CONTROL OF A SINGLE COMPREHENSIVE SOFTWARE SYSTEM.
