DICOM Transfer Rates using FPGA-based Systems on Chip



Applications and results from testing performance of sending and receiving image data using the DICOM standard. There are four applications: one each for inserting DICOM study-level and series-level data into the database and one each for retrieving DICOM study-level and series-level data from the database. Each application was tested on four platforms: Avnet ZedBoard, Xilinx ZCU102, a desktop computer using a hard disk drive (HDD) and a desktop computer using an SD card. For testing, the image data was obtained from the PROSTATE-DIAGNOSIS collection (doi: 10.7937/K9/TCIA.2015.FOQEUJVT) of the Cancer Imaging Archive (doi: 10.1007/s10278-013-9622-7). The DICOM store application used was Orthanc (doi: 10.1109/ISBI.2013.6556444). The results include the time taken to transfer each study or series and system activity recorded during the transfers using the SYSSTAT software (http://sebastien.godard.pagesperso-orange.fr/).
