Efficient transfer and storage of image data for distributed development of biomedical imaging tools Tam, Roger C. L.
The central idea behind a medical informatics testbed is the sharing of geographically distributed health information resources. Medical image data is one of the most important resources that can be shared between clinical and research sites. In this thesis, we build an infrastructure for the efficient transfer and storage of medical image data to support distributed development of biomedical imaging applications. The Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard provides interoperability in our testbed. In addition, properties of DICOM are used to help the biomedical imaging tool developer process the images. Performance analyses are done to measure the efficiency of various layers of our implementation.
