Within the Open Three Consortium (O3) an open source radiological reporting workstation, called O3- RWS, has been studied, developed and experimented in the routine of European and US hospitals. The O3 Consortium is an international open-source project constituted in 2005 by Higher Education in Clinical Engineering (HECE) of the University of Trieste; it deals with the multi-centric integration of hospitals, RHIOs and citizen (care at home and on the move, and ambient assisted living). O3-RWS has been studied and developed with the goal to give a solution for the needs of the physician, who wants to have an easy-to-use, light and complete solution for the radiology reporting and report creation. O3-RWS, a very versatile platform-independent radiology workstation, providing user authentication and being easy to use also for private users, is able to retrieve, visualize and manage medical images; in an universal version, it is going to be able to deal with vital signs like ECG, hemodynamical and pneumological data.
