The European GEMSS Project is concerned with the creation of medical Grid service prototypes and their evaluation in a secure service oriented infrastructure for distributed on demand supercomputing the GEMSS testbed. The medical prototype applications include maxillofacial surgery simulation, neurosurgery support, radiosurgery planning, inhaled drug delivery simulation, cardiovascular simulation and tomographic image reconstruction. GEMSS will enable the widespread use of these computationally demanding tools originating from projects such as BloodSim, SimBio, COPHIT and RAPT as Grid services. The numerical High Performance Computing core includes parallel Finite Element software and Computational Fluid Dynamics simulation as well as parallel optimization methods and parallel Monte Carlo simulation. Targeted enduser groups include biomechanics laboratories, hospital surgery/radiology units, diagnostic and therapeutic departments, designers of medical devices in industry as well as small enterprises involved in consultancy on biomedical simulations. GEMSS addresses security, privacy and legal issues related to the Grid provision of medical simulation and image processing services and the development of suitable business models for sustainable use. The first prototype of the GEMSS middleware is expected to be released in February 2004.

Abstract

The European GEMSS Project is concerned with the creation of medical Grid service prototypes and their evaluation in a secure service oriented infrastructure for distributed on demand supercomputing the GEMSS testbed. The medical prototype applications include maxillofacial surgery simulation, neurosurgery support, radiosurgery planning, inhaled drug delivery simulation, cardiovascular simulation and tomographic image reconstruction. GEMSS will enable the widespread use of these computationally demanding tools originating from projects such as BloodSim, SimBio, COPHIT and RAPT as Grid services. The numerical High Performance Computing core includes parallel Finite Element software and Computational Fluid Dynamics simulation as well as parallel optimization methods and parallel Monte Carlo simulation. Targeted enduser groups include biomechanics laboratories, hospital surgery/radiology units, diagnostic and therapeutic departments, designers of medical devices in industry as well as small enterprises involved in consultancy on biomedical simulations. GEMSS addresses security, privacy and legal issues related to the Grid provision of medical simulation and image processing services and the development of suitable business models for sustainable use. The first prototype of the GEMSS middleware is expected to be released in February 2004.
