Parallelization of light scattering spectroscopy and its integration with computational grid environments [electronic resource] /
ABSTRACT: In today's world, Grid computing is enabling the development of novel medical applications. Computational Grids have the potential to provide access to high-performance resources from medical facilities with network-enabled devices. This thesis considers the integration of medical applications with grids in the context of Light Scattering Spectroscopy (LSS), a nascent application in the medical imaging field. The LSS analysis enables the extraction of quantitative information about the structure of living cells and tissues by comparing the spectrum of light backscattered from tissues with the databases generated using a Mie-theory-based analytical model.
