XNAT Enterprise is a mature application but it is being used in new ways (e.g. XNAT Central) to warrant new considerations for adapting its user interface. XNAT Desktop is a prototype tool that requires substantial feedback and improvement on its user interface. Both applications will be briefly demoed, followed by open discussion and story boarding.

Approach, Plan

We will have a demo and then open discussion. Other related applications (e.g. Osirix will be demoed and discussed) to compare and contrast (and steal from). We plan to recruit a small group of clinician-scientist users in three categories: doing population studies, longitudinal studies and individual subject analyses and hold a small user-needs assessment and brainstorm session on Wednesday AM.
