Safe Distributed Architecture for Image-based Computer Assisted Diagnosis

Abstract : Existing electronic healthcare systems based on PACS and Hospital IS are designed for clinical practice. Yet, both for security, technical and legacy reasons, they are often weakly connected to computing infrastructures and data networks. In the context of the RAGTIME project, grid infrastructures are studied to propose a cheap and reliable infrastructure enabling computerized medical applications. This raises various concerns, in particular in terms of security and data privacy. This paper presents the results of this study and proposes a complete grid-based architecture able to process medical image for assisted diagnosis in a secured way. Using this infrastructure, care practitioner are able to execute the application from any machine connected to the Internet, therefore improving their mobility. Medical image analysis jobs are certified to be correct using the latest advances in result checking and fault-tolerant algorithms. The architecture has been successfully deployed and validated on the Grid5000 large scale infrastructure.
