Flywheel and the XNAT Core Development Grant

Flywheel’s mission is to enable users to do imaging-based research in high gear—something we’ve always shared with the open-source platform of XNAT.  Last year, we acquired Radiologics and its team of talented XNAT developers, and we’ve been steadily adding to that team since. Recently, the NIH transferred the XNAT core development grant from the Washington University School of Medicine to Flywheel.

XNAT users should rest assured that their open-source offering isn’t going anywhere. Flywheel is here for the XNAT community—we’re maintaining the open-source offering, and we also have Flywheel products to power users’ research as their needs evolve.

  • We offer Flywheel Discovery, a cohort discovery and provisioning tool. With Flywheel Discovery, you can index and catalog your enterprise imaging archive, enabling streamlined discovery of patient cohorts and analysis of trends within the imaging enterprise. The cohorts you provision in Discovery can be pushed into XNAT (or Flywheel Enterprise) for your research and machine learning workflows.
  • If you are interested in scaling your research infrastructure and in need of an organization-wide deployment, we have Flywheel Enterprise, our cloud-scale biomedical research platform, serving researchers across academic, clinical and life sciences organizations. Flywheel Enterprise streamlines the massive tasks of data discovery, aggregation, and curation, automates research workflows, and enables secure collaboration. Flywheel’s Customer Service and Scientific Solutions teams are available to consult with and train your team so you can optimize your instance of Flywheel.
