The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) initially adopted Flywheel to facilitate “image conveyance.” But that turned out to be just the tip of the iceberg. Read this case study for insights from Dr. Peter McCaffrey, Director of Laboratory Information Services, on how Flywheel has helped solve pervasive problems at the health science center, including:

  • Realizing greater value from imaging assets

  • Creating “living repositories” of images that can be accessed for AI training and re-training

  • Building revenue-generating data sets

  • Efficiently collaborating with external computer scientists and AI innovators
