Abstract : During this no-cost extension year, we continued to do data analysis of the ACRIN database by improving original solutions with a construction of web-based data center for this project. By merging source data, converted data and computed data together to create a relational database and developing facilitating functions, we implemented various kinds of data selection requirements in terms of SQL statements, and apply further statistics routines to discover more hidden correlations among different quantifies. We updated the design of the software pipeline and a computer demo of real-time simulation of breast anatomy and imaging, and developed proof for computational complexity of the simulation algorithm and demonstrated its asymptotic efficiency.
