Database normalisation and informal guidelines

Database Normalisation and informal design guidelines follows on from “Database planning of modules and mechanisms“, this time I am required to apply Normalisation upon my database design, discuss the Four informal design guidelines that may be used as measures to determine the quality of relation schema design as well as show sample SQL statements.

Database planning of modules and mechanisms

You have been contracted to design a database for a car rental company called “Lincoln Vehicle Rent” based in Lincolnshire. The company needs to provide full rental service which includes keeping track of customers, cars, orders and staff. Your database solution should offer the opportunity for customers to specify particular parameters about what they are […]

PACS Network Optimisation – Dissertation Project

Abstract This project aims to address PACS network optimisation, as it is being increased in clinical use. More data is being transmitted across PACS network environments which may include patient records or patients’ medical images. Without optimisation the network may suffer performance issues.  This project plans to design and implement different topologies for the PACS […]

A PACS network in its simplest form, containing a scanner, PACS storage and 2 workstations.

PACS Network Optimisation – Project Proposal

Introduction A Picture Archive Communication System (PACS) is a system which is comprised of medical imaging scanners (for example: CT or MRI scanner), storage mechanisms, information communication technologies, displays and clinical workflow. A PACS network is the combination of PACS systems and nodes (computers) accessing storage of images, at any time image files (often many) can […]

Digital Image Processing – Matlab

Write a program in MATLAB that perform the following tasks for all the images: 1. Identify the type of noise in the image and seek a way to remove the noise. The program at this stage should generate a de-noised image. (Note that not all images have the same type of noise) 2. Segment the simulated lung […]
