aycan donates again to support the OsiriX Foundation

aycan donates again to support the goals and the vision of the OsiriX Foundation. With this support we want to honor the work of Prof. Ratib, Dr. Rosset and Dr. Heuberger.

aycan was the first company who believed in the success of OsiriX since 2005. Since then we donated money and source code for the outstanding OsiriX project. We organized several OsiriX user meetings at RSNA and ECR.

aycan is offering OsiriX PRO as an FDA-cleared and CE-labeled version of OsiriX as medical device class II with support and comprehensive documentation. We are also organizing OsiriX hands-on workshops. In 2009 we held 14 workshops and we are planning the same amount in 2010. The first OsiriX workshop will be held at CT 2010 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany.

About OsiriX Foundation
The creation of OsiriX Foundation followed several years of unprecedented research and development of an Open Source solution for medical imaging.
OsiriX project started in 2004 in California, USA.
The team returned to Geneva and pursued the development of the OsiriX platform for advanced image processing competing with high-end commercial systems. The international success and wide adoption of this new Open Source platform has lead to new paradigm of software development in the medical community with a trend toward sharing and cooperation in the development of medical software applications.
Driven by their success, the OsiriX team elected to create a Foundation to support and promote the development of Open Source software in medicine.
