Traditional medical image management systems, such as picture and archiving communication systems, are based on specialized workstations and closed systems architecture. Internet technology is being explored for the efficient and cost-effective distribution of biomedical images. This article discusses new issues of a digital library for medical imaging, presents two different architectures for a Web-based medical imaging library, and illustrates their utilization with implemented examples.
