Digital image archiving--concept of digital image and video documentation in ENT. A contribution to quality assurance



Digital image archiving--concept of digital image and video documentation in ENT. A contribution to quality assurance



Hno 47(6): 541-545



Currently normal or pathologic conditions are documental by color slides, photos or videotape. However, it is more difficult to manage large numbers of images and to recall specific pictures or videos at any time. Digital record archives may be a solution for this problem. We present a digital video and photographic archive that controls documents with a picture archive software designed for use in ENT examination units. Working on this digital unit we have developed a software program that allows the creation and administration of digital pictures and videos using only one program. To avoid mistakes manual recording of data was reduced to a minimum. Filing is done automatically and similar results can be found via self-explained criteria. Due to the pro-user computer software, less trained persons are not afraid to use the system. Hence, the number of documented diagnoses has increased. Present experience shows that material and videos make it easier to work with patients and clinical confidence is increased. Additionally, the physician is protected indirectly. When many persons work with one system, digital photographic archives increase the clinician's ability to refind documents, even after a period of years. The need for quality assurance in medicine will help find more use for a digital archive in ENT.
