VVS medical workflows: Definition of a static workflow for part-based annotation of wrist bones & Web service oriented architecture for executable workflows


The report describes the extension of the Digital Shape Workbench version 5 (DSW5) for the inclusion of workflows for the analysis and processing of 3D models obtained from medical imaging data. The VVS Workflow Repository (WR) manages the creation, visualization and execution of shape processing workflows. The considered workflows are of two main categories: static and executable. The first category refers a kind of tutorial workflow/pipeline and is used for sharing expert knowledge e.g. for explaining the steps needed when dealing with a specific process. The second one represents chain of executable web services performing specific pipelines of geometric processing functions. The document describes the adopted architecture and structure for their specification and execution.
