The Software Architecture of a Grid-Enabled Data Management System for SEE-GRID
Sprache des Titels:
SEE-GRID is based on the SEE++ software system for the biomechanical simulation of the human eye. The goal of SEE-GRID is to extend SEE++ in several steps in order to develop an efficient grid-based tool for ``Evidence Based Medicine'', which supports surgeons in choosing optimal surgery techniques for the treatment of certain eye motility disorders. First, we have developed a grid-enabled version of the simulation of the Hess-Lancaster test, which is a medical examination by which the pathology of the patient can be estimated. Based on this, we work on a pathology fitting algorithm that attempts to give sufficiently close estimations for the pathological reasons of the disorder. Furthermore, we have started to develop a grid enabled distributed database where both real and simulated pathological cases can be collected, sorted and evaluated for improving both the later pathology fitting calculations and the future medical treatments. In this document, we present some new development on the “SEE++ to Grid Bridge”, by which among other things it is able to interact with the prototype version of the SEE-GRID database component. Then we give an overview on the future architecture of the SEE-GRID software system and outline its proposed components.
