Abstract. Web based applications penetrate into every software domain. Even those reserved only to desktop programs are becoming available through web browsers now. This has brought real technical challenges to software developers. Medical programs are not different. In this paper we are proposing new approach to text processing for web browser based medical applications. We are focusing on entering text of medical interpretation which is very important and sensitive aspect of medical report creation. A number of products were reviewed to justify the need for research in this area. The developed approach integrates report assembling, presentation and diagnosis text processing in accordance with medical data safety regulations. We prove that proposed solution based on HTML5 Canvas can be applied to development of the most demanding pathology reporting applications.
