2 National Alliance for Medical Image Computing Overview Introduction Core 1 Core 2 Core 3 Support Cores Slicer Demo

3 National Alliance for Medical Image Computing NIH Roadmap National Centers for Biomedical Computing (NCBC) will develop and implement the core of a universal computing infrastructure... The centers will create innovative software programs and other tools that enable the biomedical community to integrate, analyze, model, simulate, and share data on human health and disease. 7 National Centers for Biomedical Computing Funded for 5 years with the option for a second cycle

4 National Alliance for Medical Image Computing NIH NCBC’s Center for Computational Biology (CCB) Informatics for Integrating Biology and the Bedside (i2b2) Multiscale Analysis of Genomic and Cellular Networks (MAGNet) National Alliance for Medical Imaging Computing (NA-MIC) The National Center for Biomedical Ontology (NCBO) Physics-Based Simulation of Biological Structures (SIMBIOS) National Center for Integrative Biomedical Informatics (NCIBI)

5 National Alliance for Medical Image Computing Introduction What is our problem? What is our science?

6 National Alliance for Medical Image Computing What is our problem? Diagnostic Imaging produces data in increasing quantity and of increasing complexity Image Computing is about extraction of relevant information from images

7 National Alliance for Medical Image Computing What is our science? Computational tools for image analysis (algorithms) Software engineering methods and applications for image analysis (tools)

20 National Alliance for Medical Image Computing Support Cores (# 4-7) Service, Training Dissemination Crucial support for the scientific and engineering enterprise Support core PI’s also have strong scientific credentials Collaboration history through BIRN and ITK

21 National Alliance for Medical Image Computing Training

22 National Alliance for Medical Image Computing Dissemination: Events

23 National Alliance for Medical Image Computing NA-MIC-Organization Structure

24 National Alliance for Medical Image Computing The Philosophy Open Source + Open Data = Open Science

25 National Alliance for Medical Image Computing The Open Source Model Enabling technology for translational research Compatible with both research and commercialization

26 National Alliance for Medical Image Computing The Open Data Model Massive effort in social engineering (aka “This is MY data, why should I share it?”) Provides data sets and “problems” for algorithm developers E.g. BIRN develops data-sharing technology used as template by other efforts

27 National Alliance for Medical Image Computing Challenges Imaging community is in the early stage of learning about large-scale research Everybody needs infrastructure, but who will pay for it? –Translational research and software engineering is expensive and difficult. –The traditional academic reward system does not work. A pure business approach does not work either.
