Thanks to the introduction of detection systems and reconstruction algorithms that allow three-dimensional views of anatomical structures and their functionalities, during the last decade, the imaging solutions for medical issues have suffered a wide expansion and diffusion. The huge amount of available data for a single diagnostic exam requires the development of software able to store the analysis results performed on the acquired images. This article describes a Web infrastructure for the analysis of thorax radiological images obtained through computed tomography (CT) with volumetric acquisition. In particular, the infrastructure is able to perform lung densitometry analysis for pulmonary emphysema diagnosis and follow-up. The infrastructure has been realized as an upgraded version of an offline one sharing, with it, the imaging techniques [1].
