Abstract

During the daily routine in a hospital, it is important that all information regarding patients, including CT (Computer Tomography) or MR (Magnetic Resonance) images, are always accessible. However, in order to protect the privacy of a patient, the data has to be secured from unauthorized access. Therefore, a so called Modality BOX (MBOX) is used. Application data like images of various modalities like MR, CT, etc, can be uploaded to the MBOX. Once images of a patient are uploaded, they can be used by every authorized person for diagnosing and analyzing purposes. An inherent problem arises, if the report of a patient should be opened again after an analysis has been conducted. Once the analysis of the patient’s data is done, the particular work item is cancelled and the report of this patient cannot be opened again from the browser.
