1 MIRC Medical Imaging Resource Center A Tour of the MIRC Community Rex Jakobovits, PhD Affiliate Professor, University of Washington President, Vivalog Technologies* *Vivalog is a provider of commercial teaching file solutions Slides contributed by John Perry and Rodney Shaffer

2 The Objective: Support the production, storage, indexing and distribution of medical imaging resources: –Teaching files –Scientific & technical documentation –Research images & datasets –Clinical trials data

3 Approach: Enable a virtual community –of medical image libraries –with a distributed index –supporting a distributed search mechanism Peer-to-peer sharing, like Napster

4 An open community of medical imaging libraries and teaching files around the world, cooperating by sharing information through a common query format MIRC

5 Searching Imaging Resources, B.M. (Before MIRC) Google –Unstructured, free text No way to specify give me chest x-rays on male patients with pneumonia –Hit and miss, inconsistent results No way to say just give me teaching files, not random web pages

7 Searching Imaging Resources, B.M. (Before MIRC) Browse isolated collections –No way to query across systems –Need to learn heterogeneous query interfaces –Results not aggregated

13 Searching Image Resources, A.M. (Age of MIRC) A unified query interface –Structured querying across multiple repositories –Results aggregated in a case browser –Control over how results are displayed

17 How does it work? MIRC committee defined some important standards: –MIRCDocument Schema –MIRCQuery Schema Each repository can participate as a MIRC Storage Service, responding to queries from any MIRC Query Service

18 MIRC Sites Internet Server Index Server Index MIRC site B Server Index Query Service MIRC site C Server Index RSNA site User MIRC site A

19 MIRC – a technical definition MIRC is defined to be a set of servers (query services and storage services) that support: –the MIRCquery and –MIRCqueryresult XML schemas MIRC places no constraints on how servers display their contents

20 Query Services Provide users with query forms. Translate a query form into a MIRCquery XML object. Distribute the MIRCquery to all selected Storage Services. Collate the results and return them to the user.

21 Storage Services Respond to queries from Query Services and serve content to users. Each storage service maintains its own index Each storage service is responsible for the display format of its content
