Dear Slicer community,

The Open Anatomy Project is transforming research medical data into free, high-quality anatomy atlases that can be used for medical education, reference, and research. Our current atlases should be familiar to the Slicer community (the SPL/NAC/PNL brain atlas, for example).

We plan to develop a community around creating, improving, and sharing atlases and anatomical knowledge. We are working on “one-click” export of data sets from Slicer directly into a web-based atlas viewer. And we are collaborating closely with medical partners in the Canary Islands, Senegal, Mozambique, and Mauritania to train the next generation of African medical students using open digital atlases.

Please support this project. Vote today!

Thanks!
