Research on Technology of Medical Image Database and its Connection with HIS Database
Medical digital image information storage standard and existing heterogeneous database technology were analyzed with view to the particularity of the standard for medical images; data in medical images were organized according to data organizational hierarchy in the DICOM standard and sophisticated relational databases were utilized to store medical images. Using XML as a middleware to connect medical image database to HIS and then through relational databases and XML transformation rules to complete the conversion of the two databases into XML document. The study indicated that the method is able to achieve the purpose of the connection of heterogeneous databases.
