Title: DEVICE, SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR VERIFYING IMAGE-RELATED INFORMATION OF A MEDICAL IMAGE
Abstract:
The present invention relates to device, system and method for verifying image-related information of a medical image. In order to assure the correctness of the image-related information of the medical image the device comprises an image input (21) for obtaining a medical image and associated image-related information, a translator (22) for translating one or more pieces of image-related information into expected anatomical feature information, a detector (23) for searching the expected anatomical feature information in the obtained medical image or for detecting one or more given anatomical features in the obtained medical image and comparing them with the expected anatomical feature information, an evaluator (24) for evaluating the result of the detector to generate a consistency measure indicating the consistency of the image-related information with the associated medical image, and an output interface (25) for outputting an inconsistency indication if the generated consistency measure is lower than a predetermined consistency threshold.
