NCI Imaging Community Webinar: Orchestration of Distributed Image Archives

February 01, 2021 01:00 p.m. - 02:30 p.m. ET
Virtual

In this installment of the NCI Imaging Community webinar series, Dr. Jonas Almeida and Mr. Praphulla Bhawsar of NCI’s Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) will demonstrate the power of the ImageBox2 program in the orchestration of distributed image archives. Learn more about how ImageBox2 facilitates fast and easy access to massive whole-slide images stored in either cloud-based or supercomputer-based repositories over the web, without having to copy or move the original images. This ease of access allows for:

  • the extraction, management, and analysis of data.
  • the ability to avoid issues related to storage capacity, ownership, and governance.
  • artificial intelligence classifiers training across image sets that are not shared.
