OSIC Mission Statement

  • The Open Source Imaging Consortium is a cooperative effort between academia, industry and philanthropy to enable rapid advances in the fight against Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) and other progressive interstitial lung diseases (ILDs).
  • Radiologists, clinicians and computational scientists from around the world will collaborate on development of digital imaging biomarkers for accurate imaging‑based diagnosis, prognosis and prediction of response to therapy.
  • The partners will work in pre-competitive areas for mutual benefit and, most importantly, the benefit of patients.
