XNAT Developer Teleconference for August

Tomorrow, Wednesday, 21 August, will be the next XNAT developer teleconference. We've got a few interesting things to talk about tomorrow.

We've been doing a lot of work here in the lab on modules for XNAT, so we'll be showing off some of the new functionality that will be available on the XNAT Marketplace in the next couple of weeks. These include:

  • An XTK-based in-browser image viewer, with support for native DICOM viewing and even 3-D rendering of resources such as 3-D Slicer and Freesurfer messages
  • Beta update of the visits and protocols module
  • Rad read forms used internally by MIR radiologists
  • A number of useful utility modules and scripts

We're also planning another point release, XNAT 1.6.3, in the next couple of weeks. We'll talk a bit about what will be in there and how we're planning on handling release and upgrade schedules going forward.

The details to get into the developer conference can be found on the XNAT Developer Teleconference home page. We've nailed down the conference and call-in information, so we should avoid any of the issues we had with people being unable to get into either the WebEx or the actual call-in line. That said, just in case we'll have someone standing by monitoring both the NrgXnat Twitter feed and the xnat_discussion user group, so if you have any difficulties, please go ahead and post to one of those two resources.

Thanks and we hope to see you there tomorrow!
