Data Flow

  1. Securely ingest medical image data using Azure Data Factory.
  2. Securely store medical image data in Azure Data Lake Store and/or Azure Blob Storage.
  3. Analyze medical image data using a pre-trained Azure Cognitive Services API or a custom developed Machine Learning model.
  4. Store artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning results in Azure Data Lake.
  5. Interact AI and Machine Learning results using PowerBI, while preserving Role-Based Access Control (RBAC).
  6. Securely interact with medical image data via a web based vendor neutral archive (VNA) image viewer.
