Abstract

The present paper presents the development of  academic database, called DB-PET-MRI, using Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Magnetic Resonance (MRI). It presents clinical information, studies, visualization scenarios and calculation of statistical parameters of nuclear medicine. Information is anonymised and includes functional and degenerative brain pathologies. We present methodology used to adequately process the studies and obtain the information of interest.We used different software tools such as 3DSlicer, Apache, PHP, MySQL. It also describes the information system generated for presentation of all cases. Finally the complete tool is deployed highlighting the most outstanding aspects and its utilization in different academic areas.(Anonymization, online visualization, user control, etc.).Currently DB-PET-MRI has 22 studies loaded and legal aspects are being finalized for its use.
