Abstract- This paper gives review of Medical image database (MIDB) systems which have been developed in the past few years for research for medical fraternity and students. In this paper, I have surveyed all available medical image databases relevant for research and their use.
Keywords: Image database, Medical Image Database System.
 
1. INTRODUCTION
Medical imaging is the technique and process used to create images of the human for clinical purposes (medical procedures seeking to reveal, diagnose or examine disease) or medical science. As a discipline, it is part of biological imaging and incorporates radiology,  nuclear medicine, investigative radiological sciences, endoscopy, (medical) thermography, medical photography and microscopy. 

Open source software for medical image analysis
Several open source software packages are available for performing analysis of medical images:
•   ImageJ
•   3D Slicer
•   ITK
•   OsiriX
•   GemIdent
•   MicroDicom
•   FreeSurfer
 
1.1 Images used in Medical Research
Here is the description of various modalities that are used for the purpose of research by medical and engineering students as well as doctors.
i)   Computed Tomography (CT)
Computed Tomography, also known as computed axial tomography, or CAT scan is a medical technology that uses X-rays and computers to produce three-dimensional images of the human body. Unlike traditional X-rays, which highlight dense body parts, such as bones, CT provides detailed views of the body’s soft tissues, including blood vessels, muscle tissue, and organs, such as the lungs.
