Abstract:
High resolution imaging devices have made a digital medical archiving system feasible. The large volumes of information generated must be stored and retrieved at high data rates in order to insure the timely diagnosis of patients. This creates some unique technological challenges that must be resolved, including the problem dealing with multiple vendor products interacting in one environment. The high speed interface card design presented in this thesis is able to deal with different computer host busses as well as different interprocessor communication protocols. The ACR-NEMA standard has been implemented in the design as one possible network protocol that provides a solution that can be easily adapted to different vendors. The design has been analyzed using the Network II.5 simulation language. The simulation was performed to insure that the original objectives are met and to determine the impact on the protocols rated throughput.
