Abstract

The quality of life of a country’s citizens is much depended on its healthcare system. People have the right to know the status of their health. Healthcare providers need to know the medical histories of patients to offer better treatment. Therefore, demand for improvement in the access of healthcare information has been increased. This paper presents the design of an active distributed E-health system, which is scalable and more advanced softwares can be easily added. Some works on chest Xray analysis are presented to demonstrate the capabilities of the system as CAD tools for some chest diseases like congestive heart failure, lung collapse, etc. Experimental result obtained with an algorithm to detect early nodules for lung cancer and TP is very encouraging. Data mining and other artificial intelligent techniques may be used to make the system becoming more active and powerful expert system
