NBIA
* Open source, federated model for grid based image sharing.
* Allows for "nodes" to be deployed in other institutions, which can then be connected via the grid so they are query-able from any NBIA server.
* Includes both public data access without login as well as option to build secure role-based Collections which require special access via logging in
* Simple search query options include node selection, modality, contrast enhancement, anatomical site, image slice thickness, Collections (pre-defined sets of related images), the date the images were made available, and whether or not they have associated annotations
* Advanced and Dynamic search options available to search upwards of 70 additional DICOM tag attributes
* Images can be viewed on the web site via JPG thumbnails or using the Cine functionality
* Allows for storage of annotation files and meta data, though there are plans to move most of this functionality to AIM data services in the near future
* Downloads are provided in 3 formats, either via a Java webstart client (no size requirement issues, images are not zipped) or HTTP (zipped, for downloads <3GB in size) or an emailed link to an FTP

...

site (zipped, for downloads >3GB in size)
* Currently 3 major nodes hosted:
** The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA)
*** Funded by the Cancer Imaging Program within the Division of Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis, this NBIA installation is being hosted by Washington University in St. Louis
*** Publicly launched in June, 2011 with 3 purpose-built Collections ([see full Collection list

https://wiki.cancerimagingarchive.net/display/Public/Collections])

      • TCIA provides full curation support staff to review all incoming data to ensure proper de-identification by utilizing the newly released DICOM Supplement 142 standard for preventing distribution of PHI or overly aggressive methods which render data useless to researchers
      • Approximately 230GB of image data on over 1,200 patients (in publicly accessible Collections) as of July 2011
    • CIP/CBIIT
      • http://imaging.nci.nih.gov
      • Contains ~25 purpose built image collections, ~15 of which are publicly accessible to anyone - more info on the contents of each collection can be found at https://wiki.nci.nih.gov/x/lRWy
      • Collections range in size from as small as a handful of patients up to larger collections such as

...

      • the colonoscopy collections (over 800 patients each)
      • Approximately 2

...

      • TB of image data consisting of nearly 3,000 patients (in publicly accessible Collections) as of

...

...

      • Approximately 7.5TB of image data on nearly 5,000 osteoarthritis patients as of

...

      • July 2011
      • Modalities include MRI and CR
