As part of our NCBIB efforts, once new pulse sequences and analysis approaches have reached sufficient maturity to allow use by non-experts, we will make our technologies available to other researchers and clinicians in the country and worldwide. For our data acquisition approaches, reaching maturity generally would be once we have completed repeatability (test-retest) and reproducibility studies. For software, maturity would mean that the product has reached sufficient milestones such as reliable performance and additional capabilities or superior performance in comparison with existing tools. Some software may be made available as freeware through github, and may be improved further by others.
For recruitment of SPs, we expect to be contacted by interested parties who have seen our work at conferences/workshops or in papers/abstracts or have heard about it through word of mouth. On the other hand, if we ourselves see or hear about projects that may benefit from our technologies, we may contact these sites ourselves and offer to provide them with our technology. If you are interested in becoming a service project and use our technology, please apply to Dr. van Zijl or Dr. Lu (contact us page).
