Digital imaging has expanded into ob/gyn, thanks to a system being tested by researchers in Athens, Greece. The MITIS system uses the Web to manage and process obstetric, gynecologic, and radiologic data.

MITIS records medical information such as patient data, examinations, and operations. It provides advanced image processing tools for manipulation, processing, and storage of ultrasound and mammographic images. Because it is Web-based, it can be used within the hospital or physicians' offices.

The MITIS system, described in the October issue of Computer Methods and Programs in Biomedicine, can be installed on a hospital's local area network. It is being tested at Alexandra National Hospital and Attikon University General Hospital, both in Athens.
