Brain images are used in a variety of multi-disciplinary studies including: medicine, psychology, linguistics,...
They used a range of image types generated with different equipment: PET, SPECT, EEG, MEG, MR, CT and
using different parameters that produce very different data sizes and number of images.
Accordingly there is no single computational model that will suit all the possible applications.
We would like to explore the possibility of using cloud platforms for executing part of those brain imaging applications.
Our group is part of SINAPSE (Scottish Imaging Network A Platform for Scientific Excellence) (http://www.sinapse.ac.uk/)
and we collaborate in several aspects of managing and analysing brain images. We have been involved mainly in brain perfusion, but
through our contacts in BRIC (Brain Research Imaging Centre) and SINAPSE we can explore other possibilities.
