Abstract: This paper presents the IIADPS (Integrated Image Access and Distributed Processing Service) model, a software environment that allows radiological medical teams to have access to distributed image processing facilities in conformance to the DICOM 3.0 (Digital Image Communications in Medicine) standard. The model, allows to remotely execute distributed image processing for diagnosis tasks on any low-cost equipment located on a local network or high-speed wide-area network. The model was developed due to the enormous computational processing requirements normally posted to these tasks. Our approach allows low-cost equipment located in a network to be used, independently of the operational system, to execute the distributed image processing, leading to a significant reduction in the processing time. This enables also hospitals which do not have radiological stations of high processing capability to use low-cost PC networks for this purpose.
