With current medical imaging technology advancement, service providers more rely on various imaging modalities to make clinical decisions routinely. Currently 80% of medical data are images and they are increasing 20-40% annually, such a large data volume poses both challenges and opportunities to healthcare service providers. Challenges are how to manage the image data in a scalable way and use them to create value instead of just storing them, and opportunities are knowledge generation for higher quality diagnostic service and more efficient clinical workflow through intelligent image analytics. In this project, we aim to develop a medical image analytics platform which will leverage on advanced computation technologies to address the medical imaging big data problem, particularly on next generation medical image data mining and computer aided diagnosis development. This analytics platform, with scalable medical image database, distributed parallel computing engine, and powerful application development environment, will support both efficient management of medical image big data and agile development of computer aided diagnosis applications.
