Paper Abstract

As our applications continue to become more sophisticated, the demand for more storage continues to rise. Hence many businesses are looking toward data warehousing technology to satisfy their storage needs. A warehouse is different from a conventional database and hence deserves a different approach while storing data that might be retrieved at a later point in time. In this paper we look at the problem of storing and retrieving medical image data from a warehouse. We regard the warehouse as a pyramid with fast storage devices at the top and slower storage devices at the bottom. Our approach is to store the most needed information abstract at the top of the pyramid and more detailed and storage consuming data toward the end of the pyramid. This information is linked for browsing purposes. In a similar fashion, during the retrieval of data, the user is given a sample representation with browse option of the detailed data and, as required, more and more details are made available.
