Image Acquisition and Storage for Medical Imaging Systems investigates the issues and requirements to develop a medical imaging system for the dental industry. Research was conducted through studying image acquisition and digitization systems, image file format standards, and data image distribution techniques in a medical facility. Furthermore, the future trends in medical imaging industry were identified; From the studies gathered, a medical imaging system called Miniature Image and Data Acquisition System (MIDAS) was created. MIDAS is an intraoral camera imaging system, which has the capability to capture images of patient's teeth and gums, track images with patient data, and distributes images and data over a Local Area Network (LAN). These capabilities match or exceed those found in most intraoral camera systems.
