Two years ago we have been faced with the necessity of rebuilding our image processing facilities. We are operating in a large university computer center, and what we need is an equipment which can be used freely by scientific personnel for research and experimentation of processing algorithms.


Sequential Algorithm Analogical Digital Converter Image Memory Adjacent Slice General Processor 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
