The computing infrastructure in the Seaman Family Centre was initially developed in 2002 and forms the backbone of our image analysis and assessment capabilities. We have a variety of MacOS servers and over 40 Apple iMacs, which are linked by gigabit Ethernet. The software cornerstone of this infrastructure is our research PACS (picture archiving and communications system) from Intelerad. The facility was initially funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation and the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (now Alberta Innovates - Health Solutions). A number of free and commercial software packages are supported.
Mark Winder (IT Coordinator, Seaman Family Centre IT Support) and Victor Tse (IT technologist) supports and manages the operation of this facility. Access to this infrastructure is typically on a cost-recovery basis.
