The work in OSIPI is planned around 6 specific aims that include the building of a software inventory, a library of code snippets, a data inventory, reporting guidelines, education and exchange and benchmarking. The aims are delivered by one or more Task Forces, each of which is led by a (senior) task force co-lead and a (junior) co-lead appointed for a period of 2 years.
The ongoing workplan is summarised in the OSIPI roadmap.
We are always looking for help! If you want to contribute to a particular task force, then please get in touch with the appropriate task force lead directly. The names and contact details are on the task force pages listed here.
If you want to contribute but are unsure where, or your ideas are outside the remit of any given task force, then please contact a member of the OSIPI management team.
This website is hosted on github. Feel free to contribute - instructions are provided here if you are not familiar with Github.
The task force leads together with the management team form the Executive and Management Board (EMB). The EMB defines the Roadmap with detailed deliverables and milestones for each of the task forces, and monitors their implementation. The EMB reports back to the ISMRM perfusion study group ahead of each study group meeting at the ISMRM.
The mission and overall Strategic Plan of OSIPI is revised and updated on an annual basis by the Strategy Board, which also nominates the task force leads. The Strategy Board consists of the OSIPI management team, the governance committee of the perfusion study group, and representatives of other societies with a stake in perfusion stoftware development.
