To cope with the complexity of programming GPU accelerators for medical imaging computations, we developed a framework to describe image processing kernels in a domain-specific language, which is embedded into C++. The description uses decoupled access/execute metadata, which allow the programmer to specify both execution constraints and memory access patterns of kernels. A source-to-source compiler translates this high-level description into low-level CUDA and Open CL code with automatic… CONTINUE READING
