A press release from USC describes the Globus-based MEDICUS system, to be demonstrated at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting in Chicago next week. They claim that "doctors [are] finally able to share digital medical images instantly, nationwide, with full patient privacy protection." It is a press release of course, but as I've commented before, it's a pretty neat system. I'll be at RSNA to see it.
Meanwhile, we have two projects underway in the Computation Institute applying the Virtual Data System to medical problems. In one, we are processing 10s of thousands of mammograms and in the other, hundreds of functional MRIs (e.g., see this article). I'll write more about these projects as we get results.
