The Open Source Imaging Consortium (OSIC) today announced the launch of its global, data-rich repository of anonymized HRCT scans and clinical information regarding interstitial lung diseases (ILDs). This first-of-its-kind database is the world’s largest and most diverse, with a plethora of real-world clinical and imaging data that is both multi-ethnic and multi-center. The OSIC Data Repository currently houses close to 1,500 anonymized and quality-controlled scans with accompanying data and has an additional 5,000 in the quality control queue. It is on track to reach its goal of 15,000 anonymized scans, available to OSIC members, by the first quarter of 2022.
OSIC is steered by subject-matter experts Dr. Kevin Brown, Dr. Simon Walsh, and Dr. David Barber.
