A Web Services Based Brain Tumor Image Exchange System with Single Sign-On Access Management
The goal of this research is using SOAP and database technology to implement a Brain Tumor Application System that can have appropriate networking and access control capability to integrate individual medical image systems and their services seamlessly. Furthermore the access control system provides the capability of Single Sign-On to get the data from multi systems. The Brain Tumor Application also provides a methodology to analyze physiological information of the functional images by the modeling techniques, such as metabolism rate of glucose, cerebral blood volume (CBV), cerebral blood flow (CBF) and mean transit time (MTT) from functional images. Five subsystems have been implemented in the proposed Brain Tumor Application System as following, Image Exchange System, Image Analysis System, Access Control System, Single Sign-On System and Brain Tumor Multimedia Diagnosis System. It is strongly believed that the results of this research have greatly helped physicians to make significant progress on brain tumor research.
