Special Projects

Several projects related to MIRIAD are underway that experts ought to know about. Here we list them, not all have been documented in much detail yet.

  • PACS: some MIRIAD upgrade notes around PACS. Here is a drPACS teaser. But the N1333 project uses a clone of drPACS Scripts called MIS.
  • python based scripts (e.g. hemosi)
  • ruby based scripts - ATA
  • hkmiriad: writing your program in C
  • NEMOinMIRIAD Using NEMO in MIRIAD
