18 July 1999 HIPERCIR: a low-cost high-performance 3D radiology image analysis system

Clinics have to deal currently with hundreds of 3D images a day. The processing and visualization using currently affordable systems is very costly and slow. The present work shows the features of a software integrated parallel computing package developed at the Universidad Politecnica de Valencia (UPV), under the European Project HIPERCIR, which is aimed at reducing the time and requirements for processing and visualizing the 3D images with low-cost solutions, such as networks of PCs running standard operating systems. HIPERCIR is targeted to Radiology Departments of Hospitals and Radiology System Providers to provide them with a tool for easing the day-to-day diagnosis. This project is being developed by a consortium formed by medical image processing and parallel computing experts from the Computing Systems Department of the UPV, experts on biomedical software and radiology and tomography clinic experts.
