In medical organizations, there is a growing demand for archiving, federating and analyzing medical image databases which are geographically distributed. The medical imaging sector covers all aspects related to computerized medical images analysis including medical images management, medical images post-processsing, medical images simulation and image-based therapy planning. The EGEE infrastructure helps addressing data distribution and compute intensive problems such as medical data stores federation, secure data access, large databases concurrent analysis, complex analysis procedures set up and imaging physics simulation.
This medical imaging session will report on current advances in medical data management, intensive image analysis pipelines and interface to medical organizations using the EGEE grid. The first talk addresses the problem of secured and structured medical reports management on the grid. Another talk provides insights on a middleware to interface existing neurosciences resources with the grid infrastructure. A third presentation is related to a data intensive cardiac sequences analysis pipeline enactment on the EGEE grid. Finally, a work on provisioning services for clinical support will be presented.
