Simba System Information

The SIMBA Image Management and Analysis System provides an interactive web-based facility to meet the needs of research projects that involve image data. These needs include: image transfer and archiving, image documentation, case-based image management, image analysis, data form management, and project outcome analysis. This system has been used to support a wide range of research projects involving image data. SIMBA has two major configurations (a) a general purpose image analysis system to support image-based research projects, and (b) a system for managing multi-center clinical studies which supports the Early Lung Cancer Action Program (ELCAP).

The "Quick Start" document provides information on how to log into the image analysis version of the system and functions of the home page. Additional on-line documentation is avalailble from this home page. The "Overview" document provides a description of the main analysis system capabilities. Two public databases supported by the SIMBA system may be accessed by the menu items on the left of this page.

Currently SIMBA is hosted by apache on a Linux servers. Image manipulation and analysis is facilitated by the VisionX image analysis system.
