Studies in Health Technology and Informatics

This book series was started in 1990 to promote research conducted under the auspices of the EC programmes' Advanced Informatics in Medicine (AIM) and Biomedical and Health Research (BHR) bioengineering branch. A driving aspect of international health informatics is that telecommunication technology, rehabilitative technology, intelligent home technology and many other components are moving together and form one integrated world of information and communication media. The complete series has...

User visualization interface It shows the slices of the patient in three directions (XY, YZ and XZ), presenting information about the calculated doses, the areas to consider and the comparison between the reference dose (calculated by Monte Carlo) and the treatment dose (calculated by the TPS) using gamma maps. The eIMRT architecture has been described in a previous paper 7 . Figure 1 shows a general overview. It comprises four layers client, application server, computing interface...

Availability of an open source, easy to install and configure, robust and documented distribution of the grid middleware, accompanied by a _significant user support_ availability of an open source, easy to install and configure, robust and documented distribution of the grid middleware, accompanied by a _significant user support_ At a second step we have introduced some overlap to represent concurrency and a cyclical relationship between the standardisation milestones and the second deployment...

Services Oriented System for Bioinformatics Applications on the Grid

Giovanni ALOISIO, Massimo CAFARO, Italo EPICOCO, Sandro FIORE and CACT-NNL CNR-INFM, CMCC, University ofSalento, Lecce, Italy Abstract. This paper describes the evolution of the main services of the ProGen-Grid (Proteomics & Genomics Grid) system, a distributed and ubiquitous grid environment (virtual laboratory), based on Workflow and supporting the design, execution and monitoring of in silico experiments in bioinformatics. ProGenGrid is a Grid-based Problem Solving Environment that allows...

Care for Asthma via Mobile Phone CAMP

Shu-Hui HUNG, Huan Chin TSENG, Wen Ho TSAI, Hsin Hung LIN Jen Hsien CHENG, Yi-Ming CHANG National Center for High-Performance Computing, Taiwan Abstract. The primary goal of the Care for Asthma via Mobile Phone (CAMP) service is to provide an effective method by which Taiwan's asthma patients can easily monitor their asthma symptoms using a common mobile phone. With the CAMP service, the patient uses his own cellular phone to submit his daily peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) and answer a simple...
