Paper Abstract

Large volumes of data are common in medical imaging and require special applications that enable fast and reliable processing. High performance computing enables such processing by running applications in parallel. This work presents a cluster architecture for the parallel processing of DICOM datasets, where the functionality is not specified by the application itself but rather by a set of plugins. Results show that processing times reduce with each added node while network latency is kept stable.
