- <p>In many nuclear Medicine studies computer-controlled graphic displays are an absolute necessity for obtaining meaningful results. Design criteria developed by an interdisciplinary scientific panel are presented to achieve a display system based on television technology; an instrument interface employing list mode using bubble-memory storage technology, thus having a low information-loss rate; and flexible modular software easily tailored to the specific needs of both clinicians and technicians. The panel considers a minicomputer system with broad, flexible applications to be a valuable tool, particularly in doing those function studies that only can be done via nuclear medicine techniques. The final specifications ultimately allow the selection of a vendor and hospital installation, even though all criteria are not currently achievable.</p>
