Back to NA-MIC Cores
The National Alliance for Medical Image Computing,NA-MIC, is a network of peers consisting of computer scientists, engineers and biomedical researchers. NA-MIC has multiple goals which include:
The main role of the leadership of this enterprise is to set the long term and short term goals for the Alliance. This requires close consultation and coordination with and among the participants of NA-MIC. A secondary role of the leadership core is to present NA-MIC to the outside world, including NIH, the biomedical and medical image computing communities.
|NA-MIC is a National Alliance with funded activities in a variety of disease processes, geographic locations and, anatomic regions.|
