Alternative Digital Scheme Java-based for a Children’s Hospital Radiology Department

Digital medical images are an indispensable element for clinical diagnosing. The facility of handling information generated through them, allow obtaining statistical data associated to several health indicators. Standards such as DICOM and PACS software are designed for manipulating medical images and information. However, its use in some cases require expensive licenses, or computer knowledge that medical personnel area is not necessarily called to possess. Sometimes even, the needs of a hospital are much lower that the registered on such software. This article proposes the design of informatics software based on Open Source technology. The prototype has three desktop interfaces easily accessible for handling basic information. It will allow the extraction of information from medical images generated in DICOM format. The software also allows the recording and processing of statistical calculations that are necessary for the development of scientific and administrative reports at the radio diagnostic department. The prototype developed, is of simple handling, reduced cost of licensing, and can be implemented in both, conventional computer and mobile devices. Software allows visualizing image and data from other departments at clinical. The implementation of the prototype test was developed at radiological department of the Children's Hospital of Tamaulipas, México
