GEMSS (Grid Enabled Medical Simulation Services) 2002 - 2005
GEMSS has created an innovative Grid middleware that can be used to provide medical practitioners and researchers with access to advanced simulation and image processing services for improved pre-operative planning and near real-time surgical support. GEMSS builds on top of existing Grid and Web technologies, maintaining compliance with standards thereby ensuring future extensibility and interoperability. The project has created a test-bed to evaluate & validate the GEMSS environment, including its integration into the end-users working environments. The test bed provide support for sophisticated authorisation, workflow, security, error detection and recovery. Furthermore, GEMSS anticipates privacy, security and other legal concerns by examining and incorporating into its Grid services the latest laws and EU regulations related to providing medical services over the Internet.
In summary, GEMSS
Installs an extendible, interoperable and collaborative test bed for GRID-enabled medical application services.
