Image processing, parametric imaging, distributed processing.


Parametric imaging requires to calculate an image (parameter values) for every parameter of the assumed object or process model. This is usually achieved by a model to data fitting. The computational cost is high, so performance improvement is required. In the presented study a distributed system based on JavaSpace (Sun Microsystems) technology [1] was applied to calculate parametric images. Implemented Compute Server methodology was used for two medical applications: active thermography and dynamic MRI brain studies. Based on performed experiments and results we conclude that using existing computer infrastructure and limited software modifications high performance improvements can be achieved.
