  2. [UNC Roadmap Project: Cortical Thickness Measurement for Autism]
  3. [MIND Roadmap Project: Brain Lesion Analysis in Lupus]
  4. [JHU Roadmap Project: Segmentation and Registration for Robotic Prostate Intervention]

Agenda for AHM 2009 and Project Week


  1. Please make sure that you are on the na-mic-project-week mailing list
  2. TBD Kickoff TCON#1 (w/ NA-MIC Engeering Core only) to discuss Projects and Assign/Verify Teams]]
  3. TBD TCON#2 with all participants to Assign/Verify Teams]]
  4. TBD TCON#3 with Breakout Session owners to review agendas]]
  5. TBD TCON#4 with remaining participants to Assign/Verify Teams
  6. By TBD, 2008: Complete a templated wiki page for your project. Please do not edit the template page itself, but create a new page for your project and cut-and-paste the text from this template page. If you have questions, please send an email to tkapur at bwh.harvard.edu.
  7. TBD TCON#5 to discuss outstanding projects and teams
  8. TBD Create a directory for each project on the NAMIC Sandbox (Zack)
    1. Ask Zack for a Sandbox account
    2. Commit on each sandbox directory the code examples/snippets that represent our first guesses of appropriate methods. (Luis and Steve will help with this, as needed)
    3. Gather test images in any of the Data sharing resources we have (e.g. the BIRN). These ones don't have to be many. At least three different cases, so we can get an idea of the modality-specific characteristics of these images. Put the IDs of these data sets on the wiki page. (the participants must do this.)
    4. Setup nightly tests on a separate Dashboard, where we will run the methods that we are experimenting with. The test should post result images and computation time. (Zack)
  9. Please note that by the time we get to the project event, we should be trying to close off a project milestone rather than starting to work on one...
