Abstract

We discuss computing issues for data analysis and image reconstruction of positron emission tomography based on time-of-flight medical scanner or other medical scanning devices producing large volumes of data. Service architecture based on grid and cloud concepts for distributed processing is proposed and critically discussed.

Keywords: high-performance computing; medical image reconstruction; positron emission tomography
