XNAT was originally developed as an “extensible neuroimaging archive toolkit,” and has evolved to become a powerhouse open-source platform for neuroimaging research and processing. XNAT is the primary product of the NRG and our core raison d’être, as well as the platform of choice for research projects around the world.
As a project, XNAT has been ongoing since 2004, and is currently supported by NIH grant 1 R01 EB009352-01A1 and U54 EB005149-04. (Full list of NRG grant support).
The primary functionality of XNAT is to provide a place to store and control access to neuroimaging data. This includes sophisticated user control, search and retrieval, and archiving capabilities. As open-source software, XNAT also supports a wide variety of research-based processing pipelines, and is able to link up with supercomputer processing power to dramatically shorten image processing time.
