Eastman Kodak Company demonstrated
enhancements to its CARESTREAM Radiology Solutions platform, including
productivity-enhancing features and tools that serve entry-level users
as well as large healthcare systems and regional organizations. These
new features were shown as a works-in-progress at the annual meeting of
the Radiological Society of North America.
Radiology Solutions include KODAK CARESTREAM PACS (picture archiving
and communications system) and KODAK CARESTREAM RIS (radiology
information system). CARESTREAM Radiology Solutions provide a
that addresses the operational needs of clinics, imaging
centers, hospitals and healthcare networks, including orthopaedic,
mammography and oncology facilities.
"Kodak's newest PACS platform will support workflow Grid computing, which facilitates storage and retrieval of information throughout an enterprise with a shared infrastructure that can serve multiple sites throughout a city or region," said Michael W. Jackman, general manager, Healthcare Information Solutions, and vice president, Eastman Kodak Company.
Workflow Grid computing will increase the availability and redundancy of a multi-site system. It also provides efficient management of distributed storage systems and delivery of archived data to any review location.
This workflow Grid technology can provide synchronized global worklist and reporting to all sites, while allowing each site to operate independently of the network or centralized server when necessary. Business continuity is expedited by supporting access from a secondary data center if the primary data center experiences equipment failure or a natural disaster. Cost efficiencies can be achieved through the sharing of storage resources, with flexible allocation that can be adjusted to match the changing needs of each facility.
Kodak's current version of CARESTREAM PACS software offers a virtual desktop environment that allows any application, including 3D processing, to be delivered to any desktop inside or outside the organization.
The latest PACS software upgrade is designed to enhance the effectiveness of Kodak's virtual desktop with the following new features:
also announced that it is working to incorporate the following
capabilities as part of its CARESTREAM Radiology Solutions platform:
The ever-growing complexity of scientific and engineering problems continues to pose new computational challenges. Thus, we present a novel federation model that enables end-users with the ability to aggregate heterogeneous resource scale problems. The feasibility of this federation model has been proven, in the context of the UberCloud HPC Experiment, by gathering the most comprehensive information to date on the effects of pillars on microfluid channel flow.
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.

05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
04/02/2012 | AMD | Developers today are just beginning to explore the potential of heterogeneous computing, but the potential for this new paradigm is huge. This brief article reviews how the technology might impact a range of application development areas, including client experiences and cloud-based data management. As platforms like OpenCL continue to evolve, the benefits of heterogeneous computing will become even more accessible. Use this quick article to jump-start your own thinking on heterogeneous computing.
