XNAT's extensibility and flexibility allows you to support multiple types of studies. This documentation will show you how to configure XNAT features to support several example study types.

Determine Your Study Requirements with a Project Intake Document

Knowing how to translate your PI's requirements into XNAT features and capabilities can be a tricky process. This project intake document can help. It helps you gather answers to the following study components:

  • Study Type, Structure and Business Rules
  • Data Types to be collected
  • Anonymization
  • QC and Validation
  • Project contributors
  • Reporting
  • Sharing or Publishing

Common Study Types

Prospective Data Study

For studies that are actively enrolling subjects and capturing new data...

Optional: Set up a Study Protocol

If you know you have a precise protocol of data to collect from every subject, you can use the Visits and Protocols plugin to reflect this in XNAT. This will allow you to monitor what data has been collected, and what is expected, and what exceptions have been made for each subject in your study.

 

Retrospective Data Study

For studies that are amassing large quantities of data from other previous studies...


Longitudinal Study

For studies that are collecting data from subjects at multiple points over time...

Optional: Set up a Longituindal Study Protocol

If you have a predictable visit frequency for your subjects, you can use the Visits and Protocols plugin to reflect this in XNAT. This adds the ability to add data to specific visits, open and close visits for reporting purposes, and ensure that you are getting the data you need at each point.

 

Multi-Site Study

For studies that are collecting data from multiple federated sites...
