Data Management Technologies For The Magnetic Resonance Imaging E-Research Grid

Grant number: LP0667490


Howard Florey Institute researchers will collaborate with SGI's file-systems engineering team. Substantial benefits are expected from the development of techniques to support centralized and distributed processing medical image datasets. Issues requiring research include file space allocation algorithms and caching strategies. The proposed rapid database access technologies aim at solving these problems in the medical imaging research context. The project attempts to 'improve data management for existing and new business applications'. This enhanced sharing of information will improve critical mass therefore fostering national and international collaboration.
