Paper Abstract

Nuclear medicine presents a challenging set of requirements to the computer system designer and a unique opportunity to implement multi-user computer systems in diagnostic imaging. Data are presented to elucidate these requirements by comparison to the other imaging modalities and to demonstrate the growing need for distributed computer services. The efficacies of various system architectures for distributed processing in nuclear medicine are analyzed and an architectural hybrid between a network and multi-processor configuration is proposed. This architecture is analyzed against the current and future processing requirements of nuclear medicine.
