Parallel Archiving and Communication System


The objectives of the project are:

to build a parallel application for medical images archiving, visualisation and processing
to develop a multiple disk, multiple network parallel data server machine.

PARCS is based on integrating results from a set of existing prototypes and products

a transputer-based parallel image database management prototype machine
the results of the HAMLET project (6290)
a radiological information system.

The resulting PAC/RIS system will offer some outstanding features:

scalability and modularity on the server and network architecture

high performance in the image retrieval speed
openness to information technology and medical standards
highly competitive price/performance ratio.
