Presented as part of T16: Radiology Informatics (PACS: Tools II)


Vince Dovydaitis, PRESENTER: Nothing to Disclose

Abstract: HTML Creating secure, robust, web-based platforms for image storage and distribution presents special challenges to the system developer. These challenges include guaranteed availability, adequate performance (especially for imaging), scalability (as enterprises grow and merge), security and patient privacy (satisfying both HIPAA and enterprise requirements), and both short-term and long-term archival solutions. Utilizing the case study method, this presentation analyzes the architecture and implementation of an image storage and distribution system. The case study is based on a system developed in C# using the .NET Framework and Microsoft SQL Server. The paper examines the effect of using .NET on both developer productivity and the architecture of the resulting system. .NET promises to facilitate the construction of distributed web-based systems. The presentation provides insight into the implications of key business drivers on system architecture. Specialized topics include: Use of ASP.NET and Remoting for image search and delivery The integration of ADO.NET and the DICOM protocols The integration of ADO.NET and Storage Area Networks Security for IIS, ASP.NET and Remoting transactions     Audience participants will learn: 1.The key technological capabilities included in .NET and how they impact image storage and delivery, as well as improve patient care via security and privacy. 2.How to address the integration of web-based protocols and DICOM protocols. 3.How to implement security within .NET platforms (especially in a high performance realm.)
