dc.description.abstract The ability to perform reliable and consistent clinical research in dermatology hinges not only on the ability to accurately describe and codify diagnostic information, but also complex visual data. Visual patterns and images are at the core of dermatology education, research and practice. As we move into the next millennium, advances in digital imaging techniques and processing will deliver new and powerful methods to measure outcomes in clinical research. These new imaging and computing technologies will also facilitate remote diagnosis through telemedicine. Digital technology is also creating new opportunities to enhance medical education and care through digital image databases, computerized medical records and knowledge sources. To realize their full potential all these technologies will require a standard dermatology lexicon. Without a universally accepted terminology it is difficult to conduct standardized multi-center research, build distributed or shared image databases and create useful computerized medical records. Standardized techniques and vocabularies are necessary for image acquisition, transmission, archiving, display and review within the integrated health network and academic research area. en_US
