The authors address using the concept of multimodal bioimage integration at the local area network level, using 3D MRI and PET data of the human head. Here, integration is intended between structural and functional multidimensional images of the same body area of a patient. They analyze the role of present technology and standards (such as the X Window protocol) in providing the physician with a better understanding of the structure-to-function relationships of a given biological organ. They analyze the concept of integration intended as a tool to extract the significative information content from bioimages, i.e. to perform image analysis. The fusion of visual eidetic and linguistic knowledge, which plays an important role in medical diagnosis formation, is seen as a significant step towards obtaining quantitative evaluation of the relevant information content of bioimages.<>
