Computed Tomography and Molecular Imaging Platforms

According to this article published on HPCWire:

"in order to process the data and create the reconstruction, the CT software requires a high-end computer with significant computation capability."

Such infrastructures would include NVIDIA GPUs to ease this task.

Nonetheless and altough I am a complete unliterate in CT, I just wanted to highlight here that CIC Biomagune includes a complete Molecular Imagin Platform.

I am thinking here not only about the processing (that perhaps is done using only privative software and formats) but in the storage: we do not have an scalable, redundant storage solution. At least not known. And this is not a regular task that any "time machine" could do.
