Paper Abstract

This paper describes an innovative framework for a scalable, secure, transparent and distributed medical image-database system which functions in a heterogeneous computer environment using CORBA and DCOM. The framework is designed for implementing telemedicine applications with maximal resource reusability and load balancing. This will enable an existing computer system to be adapted easily to the new system with minimal effort and cost. We have developed a heterogeneous distributed image-database system called MIRage, composed of three subsystems and ORB, based on the CORBA specification as underlying middleware. The ORB, which is a distributed demon structure, enables a cluster of heterogeneous computers to be seen as a single MIRage system, regardless of location and operating system.
