This week on SIIMCast, join Arjun and Jason, as they interview Norman Young and Chris Hafey ( @CHafey ‏) about open source software in imaging informatics and medicine.

Norman Young has been involved with medical imaging product development for the past 20 years. He began his career as a medical imaging software developer at an major academic hospital in Toronto, Canada. That was followed by stints at two RIS/PACS companies. In 2005, he founded ClearCanvas, an open source medical imaging software company, which went on to be acquired by Synaptive Medical in 2014. Today, Norman manages a team of physicists and software developers at Synaptive, building applications in MRI and imaging informatics.

Chris Hafey serves as Chief Technology at Nucleus Health. Prior to NucleusHealth, Chris served as CTO for OnPoint Medical Diagnostics, Chief Architect at Vital Images, Director of Engineering at Stentor and other leadership roles for many technology firms. Chris is the creater of the Cornerstone Open source SDK for interacting with DICOM images on the web.
