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.
