The UK is constructing eDiamond, a computing grid to improve screening for breast cancer. Mammography centres in four cities will be linked in a prototype of the grid, which if successful will be extended to 92 sites nationwide. £4m ($6.3m) will be allocated to the project, which will use grid technology, enabling more effective computer sharing of information than via the internet.
