We have tested the algorithm in two different CPU architectures (SPARC and Intel) and four different configurations including a Beowulf cluster, two Sun clusters and a symmetric multiprocessor. The experiments provide a good speedup in all the cases and show a very good performance/price ratio in the PC-Linux cluster. We present results using a three channel, high resolution original dataset in times less than two minutes in the best cases and we use the segmented maps to make clinically relevant 3D visualizations in interactive times.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/47464||ISSN:||0277-786X||DOI:||10.1117/12.428041||Source:||Proceedings of SPIE - The International Society for Optical Engineering[ISSN 0277-786X],v. 4319, p. 88-91|
