Biomedical Imaging workflows


Scientific researchers working on biomedical imaging are used to develop their own filters for processing the data. Each filter can be configured using a set of parameters. When composing several filters in a pipeline, the configuration of the execution pipeline and the parameters is difficult to manage.

A new approach for composition and execution of biomedical workflows is presented. Taverna Workbench is used as a scientific workflow composition tool and execution engine. GIMIAS is the intermediate layer that executes the requested workflow components providing a web services interface. ITK is used at the bottom layer for processing the data using the already available filters. However, other processing libraries like VTK, Netgen or VMTK can be used together at the bottom layer.
