Now that you have an XNAT up and running, you need to know how to put it to good use. In this session, we will review the basics of how your XNAT site is organized. We'll review the different user roles associated with your site: Site Administrators, Data Administrators, Project Owners, Project Members, and Project Collaborators. We'll review the different options for organizing and securing your data via the XNAT project structure. We'll review the common maintenance tasks you should be aware of.
