Harnessing graphics processing power yields major cancer screening advance, next-generation programming architecture J. Daniel Janzen A longtime leader in breast cancer detection and diagnosis, the Breast Imaging Division in the Department of Radiology at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) has been instrumental in helping bring new screening approaches to the field. MGH’s technological innovation and clinical research have enabled doctors...
As data management challenges continue to grow, organizations are working to develop new solutions Rob Farber Do you remember when a gigabyte disk drive was "a lot" of storage in that by-gone age of the 20 th century? Still in our first decade of the 21 st century, major supercomputer sites now speak of storage in terms of petabytes, 10 15 bytes, or six orders of magnitude increase in capacity over a gigabyte! Unlike our archaic "big" disk...
LIMS Watch report cuts to the chase Randy C. Hice Technology not only outpaces our ability to understand it, but the diversity of technology creates new silos of ignorance that slant the learning curve ever upward. Since my bandwidth to study trade magazines on every facet of technology is limited, I am a voracious consumer of professional reviews, ratings, opinion polls and independent testing organization briefs. This approach was most useful as I...
