The objective of this thesis is to explain the analysis we realized after our work on a preexisting medical application: "Surface Maker". This software has been developed in the Mechanical Engineering Department of the University of Vermont (Burlington, USA) and is aimed to be used by a targeted category of users, essentially composed of scientists working in a research environment. The analysis done in this thesis concerns the techniques and the standards permitting notably the
realization of computer systems dedicated to medical imaging, namely : the picture archiving and communication systems of medical images, the multimedia and communication tools such as HTML and XML, and finally, some other important standards for medical imaging
