Leveraging OSGi and SWT in Diagnostic Medical Imaging
My team is responsible for the design, development, deployment, and maintenance of an FDA regulated 510k approved medical imaging application that is written on top of the Eclipse platform. We have taken many standard workbench concepts and extended them beyond that base layer to support multimonitor environments, saving/restoration of application state included the images being viewed, the transformations to images, and additional reporting that the user may have performed within the application across the network and across facilities. We have heavily leveraged SWT to provide a modern look and feel to our application to suit the needs of our users within the radiology space. Beyond that, we have an application delivery system comprised of server side OSGi components that allow us to run our desktop app on a server and access it through a browser with no client software installation required, or any minimum browser requirements. We would like to present some of the layers we've introduced in the UI as well as a general overview of how modular OSGi has made us successful.
