This paper provides a concise description of one aspect of research into a Multimedia INtelligent Oncology Workstation (MINOW) for the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer with emphasis on the provision of an open access multimedia computer-aided learning environment combined with an intelligent decision support system in the clinical work environment. Currently much research is directed to the determination of the medical effectiveness of treatment protocols. The MINOW is the ideal tool to capitalise on this research, to disseminate it to workers in the field and to educate health-care professionals and students. It is hoped that through an open access multimedia computer-aided learning environment, it would be possible to achieve a unified high-quality standard of training and education and ultimately to increase the average survival rate for this disease throughout the United Kingdom and elsewhere where expertise would not otherwise be available.
