31st December 2016 Happy old year, Happy new year!

With the year 2016 ending we would like to say thank you to all of you for your tremendous support! This was the year of birth of opensourceimaging.org and the start of the open source imaging initiative. It was a lot of fun watching our initiative grow and develop. A short update on the latest events.

Dr. Nikola Stikov, founder of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping, visited Stanford University last week and spoke on the topic of modern science communication with the goal of communicating science to a broader audience using blogging.

A petition has been started by Michael Hansen (NIH, Bethesda, US) and others working on Open Source Software in the MR community to create an ISMRM study group on reproducible research. We talked to Michael and once the study group is formed Open Source Hardware will be included as well. So please support this great initiative! Sign the...

28th September 2016 15th Open Source Project Added

We have already 15 projects uploaded! What can you do with the last five uploads? Well, e.g. you can reconstruct your images using BART or Gagdetron, convert them to the open data format ISMRMRD in order to share your data with your collaborators, who can use the result for simple image registration with SimpleElastix. Or are you a hardware girl/guy?...
