This page uses actual KMeD screenshots to walk through the various functions and capabilities of the KMeD system. The material found here is based on a poster developed by the KMeD Research Group for the Computer Science Department's 1994 Annual Research Review. Full technical details can also be found in:

Wesley W. Chu, Alfonso F. Cárdenas, and Ricky K. Taira. KMeD: A Knowledge-Based Multimedia Medical Distributed Database System. Information Systems, 20(2): 75-96, 1995.

Please note that these pages are very graphics-intensive; some pictures are quite large, and there are a lot of them. Be prepared to wait a bit if you don't have a fast network connection.
