Course description: 

One of the producers of data that can bring an information system network to its knees quickly is medical imaging systems.  CT, MR and even Digital Radiography image are now higher resolution than ever and generating huge volumes of data.  Cardiac Systems and even the newer CT systems are producing high speed, volumetric data from which we can see 3 dimensional images of the body.  This module will review the basic operation of each of these "data generators" and how they are impacting the performance of modern day network systems.
