Why did you build GaelO ?
Imaging became a major endpoint in clinical trials.
To produce high quality trials we need high quality software capable of image anonymization, storage, centralized review and follow-up management tools.
A lot of imaging CROs are providing such services. Most of them are doing good job but their prices exclude the small / academic research projects that are unable to afford their services.
The idea of the GaelO project is to make a collaborative web application, free and open source that provide high level services to manage imaging in clinical trials.
As a free project, we are open to everyone who want to contribute to the ecosystem, we are concerned about continuously enhance the GaelO platform to bring it to new capabilities , so feel free to share your ideas
How can I get it ?
To use GaelO you need to install it on a webserver with Php, Apache and MySQL. Download the source code, install it on your server following the instruction an fly !
I want it but I don’t have any computing skills to install a server
We are looking for commercial partners to provide GaelO as a hosted, ready to use service.
What images modalities are supported ?
GaelO has been primarly designed for PET/CT but almost all modalities should be supported, MRI, PET-CT, CT, Scintigraphy can be uploaded in GaelO. As long as the image is DICOM it should be able to store and share with GaelO. Contact us if you are trying to work with a specific modalities we will adapt the code to extends GaelO to new horizons.
