A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11907286B2) discloses a system that involves one or more processing devices connected to servers and nodes through networks. The system includes memory storing instructions for executing various operations. These operations include receiving a request from a communication device at a node for a subset of data files from a database, extracting a source identifier from the request, identifying a source server associated with the identifier, translating metadata elements, establishing a data link with the source server, querying for the subset, and transmitting a status indication over the networks. Additionally, the system can transmit the physiological image and data reports with analytical data related to the image.

Furthermore, the patent describes computer-readable media storing instructions for similar operations as the system, including receiving requests, extracting identifiers, querying servers, translating metadata, and transmitting status indications. The media can also facilitate querying data stores for reports analyzing the physiological image. Additionally, a method outlined in the patent involves receiving requests for data subsets, extracting identifiers, querying servers, establishing data links, and transmitting status indications. The method can also involve querying data stores for analytical reports related to the physiological image, further enhancing the functionality of the system described in the patent.
