Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture is a healthcare information system (HIS). VistA is widely believed to be the largest integrated HIS in the world. It was originally developed and maintained by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), based on the systems software architecture and implementation methodology developed by the U.S. Public Health Service jointly with the National Bureau of Standards. It is designed to provide a high-quality medical care environment for the country's military veterans. VistA has a proven track record of supporting a large variety of clinical settings and medical delivery systems.
SENTENSA Knowledge Miner is a platform independent tool for searching any text. SENTENSA uses robust methods of indexing and searching text, leveraging experience from more than 20 years of information retrieval. SENTENSA products offer advanced text retrieval solutions for large databases that will make your searches for key information fast and effective. You can index on one platform and query on another.
Seg3D is a volume editing and processing tool that combines a flexible manual segmentation interface with powerful higher-dimensional image processing and segmentation algorithms from the Insight Toolkit. DICOM, VFF, META, NRRD, and many other volume formats are supported. Users can explore and label image volumes using configurable, orthogonal slice view windows and 3D volume rendering.
Drugref is a collaborative effort to create and maintain a database of pharmaceutical reference information, tagged by language, country, and reference source. A Web interface written in PHP4 allows the community of health professionals to maintain and review content. The database structure, implemented in PostgreSQL, is designed to facilitate automated decision support. "Tagging" allows one to import information from any source in parallel, thus allowing drugref to work as a generic interface to any kind of (comercially or freely) available drug reference information.
ChemoDose is a chemotherapy prescribing calculator for Palm OS devices. It aims to provide all common prescribing functions on a single page. Included functions are ideal body weight, body surface area (Dubois), creatinine clearance (Cockcroft), and dosing by weight, BSA, and Calvert (AUC).
MeVisLab is a platform for image processing research and development with a focus on medical imaging. It allows fast integration and testing of new algorithms and the development of application prototypes that can be used in clinical environments. Beside general image processing algorithms and visualization tools, MeVisLab includes advanced medical imaging modules for segmentation, registration, volumetry, and quantitative morphological and functional analysis.
Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) is a magnetic resonance imaging method that can be used to measure local information about the structure of white matter pathways within the human brain. Combining DTI data with the computational methods of MR tractography, neuroscientists can estimate the locations and sizes of nerve bundles (white matter pathways) that course through the human brain. DTI-Query allows neuroscientists to place and interactively manipulate box-shaped regions (or volumes of interest) to selectively display pathways that pass through specc anatomical areas.
