Introduces a CORBA-based medical image analysis and modeling system, which is platform-independent and provides high accessibility and usability of the system for users at remotely located sites. The system allows us to manage data sets and manipulate medical images by methods such as segmentation and volume visualization of computed geometry from biomedical images in distributed environments. Using an active contour model and additive re-projection, the system provides boundary information of specific tissues and real-time rendering of the 3D volume. In addition, it supports collaborative work among multiple users using broadcasting and synchronization mechanisms. For the development of the system, we adopted the DICOM (Digital Images and Communications in Medicine) standard as a method of transferring images and as an associated information device. Since the system is developed using Java and CORBA, which provide distributed programming, the remote clients can access server objects via method invocation, without knowing where the distributed objects reside or what operating system they are executing on
