Distributed Medical Modeling, Design Prototyping and Collaborative Visualization

Chandrajit L. Bajaj

Our goal is to depart from traditional single user systems and build computer-enhanced multi-user collaborative scientific problem solving environments. These CSCW (Computer Supported Cooperative Work) environments provide support for collaboration in the problem-solving phase, as well as in the review phase. In this brief paper I shall present a client-server environment called SHASTRA that we have built [Anupam and Bajaj, 1993a, Anupam and Bajaj, 1993b], to support medical modelling, visualization and design prototyping, allowing multiple users to share and interact over extremely large CT/MRI and other volume image data sets. I describe two ongoing distributed medical modelling and collaborative visualization research projects that we are involved with using the SHASTRA environment.
