The Open Health Imaging Foundation (OHIF) was launched in 2015 through a development partnership between Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Department of Radiology and Radical Imaging to create an open source web-based medical imaging platform for the global community. The partnership combines the project management, user experience design, and product testing experience of the MGH group with the software development and system design expertise of Radical Imaging. Funding for OHIF has been primarily through research grants to MGH, direct funding from MGH Department of Radiology and its Precision Imaging Metrics clinical trials informatics project, Radical Imaging through in-kind support, and academic-industry technical collaborations among MGH, Radical, and companies using the OHIF Framework. Here are some example projects from the collaboration between Radical and MGH using OHIF.
The OHIF Viewer is a zero-footprint all-purpose radiology viewer based on Cornerstone that meets the minimum requirements for the IHE Basic Image Review profile. The code is organized into packages that can be re-used to build other purpose-specific viewers to accommodate a variety of custom workflows. OHIF has formed the basis for many viewer projects world-wide.
LesionTracker is an image viewer based on the OHIF framework, tailored specifically for an oncology metrics workflow that is useful in clinical trials. It has specialized tools, UI elements, and logic for measuring tumors and following their progress (growth or shrinkage) over time, typically in response to a treatment as part of a clinical trial. This project is funded by the National Cancer Institute under a 5-year ITCR U24 grant.

"We’ve made great progress on our cardiology viewer with Radical Imaging’s help. Their developers are focused, meticulous and really understand the technology we’re using. I appreciate the direct involvement of their tech leads on our projects; their expertise in medical imaging in general and the OHIF framework in particular gives me confidence that we can tackle any hard problems we might face."
