eXtensible Imaging Platform

Product Description

The eXtensible Imaging Platform (XIP) offers a set of tools for rapidly developing medical imaging processing and visualization applications. One of the goals for XIP is to allow cancer researchers to easily create complex data analysis programs (for example, lesion change detection) targeted at specific investigations. By employing the coming DICOM WG-23 Application Hosting interfaces, XIP Applications can be distributed to a variety of installations, thus providing more consistency in data collection for clinical trials. The XIP tools can also be employed to create other types of applications.
