Ad Hoc Committee on Open Image Archives

Stemming from the November 2009 Imaging Biomarker Roundtable, the Ad Hoc Committee on Open Image Archives was established in order to examine existing image sharing and archival standards and database formats. Committee efforts will focus on identifying why prior activities have been successful or have experienced obstacles. The committee is co-chaired by Dr. Gudrun Zahlmann (Roche) and Mr. Rick Avila (Kitware).
