Project Description


ImagineHive is a data management and analytics platform for hospital environments consisting of:

  1. Web frontend to navigate, filter and edit patients data.
  2. HIVE server backend for storing and sharing data and run data analytics and processing workloads. HIVE is a massively parallel distributed computing environment where the distributed storage library is linked with computational.
  3. SlicerHIVE, a Slicer-based app that shows up in the web browser and offers 3D image visualization and analysis:
    • Browse and retrieve data from hospital PACS.
    • Viewer and markup tools for enhanced teamwork.
    • Automated segmentation tools.

ImagineHive is currently used at the Weill Cornell Medicine/Presbyterian NY hospital (CI3: center for intelligent image guided interventions at New York Presbyterian Hospital, New York, NY, USA) for clinical pre-operation review and planning.


  1. Present ImagineHive. Get feedback.
  2. Learn about user needs.
  3. Foster collaborations with potential users and similar development efforts.

Approach and Plan

  1. Have a meetings/demos with people interested.

Progress and Next Steps

  1. Update of Slicer’s DICOM browser to be more friendly for patient-oriented clinical workflows (visual appearance, better responsiveness - see details.
  2. We had a meeting on Tuesday where we discussed the integration of customized 3DSlicer into web applications.
  3. We presented a demonstration of ImageHIVE on Thursday and collected feedback.
