The MammoGrid project has deployed its Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)-based Grid application in a real environment comprising actual participating hospitals. The resultant setup is currently being exploited to conduct rigorous in-house tests in the first phase before handing over the setup to the actual clinicians to get their feedback. This paper elaborates the deployment details and the experiences acquired during this phase of the project. Finally the strategy regarding migration to an…

Experiences of Engineering Grid-Based Medical Software

Final Results and Exploitation Plans for MammoGrid

The MammoGrid project has delivered the first deployed instance of a healthgrid for clinical mammography that spans national boundaries and lessons learned during the lifetime of the project are detailed and recommendations drawn for future health applications using grids.

The MammoGrid Virtual Organisation - Federating Distributed Mammograms

The service-based approach in the creation and management of the federated distributed mammography database is outlined and the role of virtual organisations in distributed image analysis is discussed.

DICOM Image Communication in Globus-Based Medical Grids

A solution is proposed that adapts the DicOM protocol to the Globus grid security infrastructure and utilizes routers to transparently route traffic to and from DICOM systems, so that all legacy DICom devices can be seamlessly integrated into the grid without modifications.

A Reliable DICOM Transfer Grid Service Based on Petri Net Workflows

The proposed solution in this paper replaces the GridFTP combination by an end- to-end Grid-enhanced DICOM implementation and models the GridDICOM transfers as complex, Petri-Nets-based workflows.

A formal architecture-centric and model driven approach for the engineering of science gateways

The applicant proposes the application of a formal Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) approach to service-oriented developments, making it possible to define Grid-based architectures and Science Gateways that satisfy quality of service requirements, execution platform and distribution criteria at design time.


The state-of-the-art of Healthgrid and key Healthgrid applications around the world are reviewed and a case study on “Bioprofiling over Grid” for the early detection of dementia is given.

Grid-supported Medical Digital Library

The early results of the work towards establishing a Medical Digital Library supported by grid technologies are presented and the future directions of its development are discussed.

A System Architecture for the BING - Brain Image Network Grid

The goal is to develop a system that simultaneously can provide basic data services, allow collaborative research between geographically distributed partners and make use of the Grid computational power.

MammoGrid--a prototype distributed mammographic database for Europe.



MammoGrid: A Service Oriented Architecture Based Medical Grid Application

The MammoGrid approach in managing a federation of Grid-connected mammography databases in the context of the recently delivered prototype is outlined and the next phase of prototyping is described.

Grid databases for shared image analysis in the MammoGrid project

This work outlines the approach taken in MammoGrid to seamlessly connect radiologist workstations across a grid using an "information infrastructure" and a DICOM-compliant object model residing in multiple distributed data stores in Italy and the UK.

GPCALMA: a grid approach to mammographic screening

A relational approach to the capture of DICOM files for Grid-enabled medical imaging databases

A Grid-enabled medical imaging database---eDiaMoND--employs an object-relational approach to the storage of DICOM files, which is applicable to other medical imaging systems dealing either with other modalities or with other diseases.

The AliEn system, status and perspectives

The aim of this paper is to present the current AliEn architecture and outline its future developments in the light of emerging standards.

The 4+1 View Model of Architecture

The 4+1 View Model organizes a description of a software architecture using five concurrent views, each of which addresses a specific set of concerns. Architects capture their design decisions in

The WS-Resource Framework

The WS-Resource framework is introduced, a set of proposed Web services specifications that define a rendering of the WS- resource approach in terms of specific message exchanges and related XML definitions, and is provided for review and evaluation only.

The Physiology of the Grid

This presentation complements an earlier foundational article, “The Anatomy of the Grid,” by describing how Grid mechanisms can implement a service-oriented architecture, explaining how Grid functionality can be incorporated into a Web services framework, and illustrating how the architecture can be applied within commercial computing as a basis for distributed system integration.
