The creation of OsiriX Foundation followed several years of unprecedented research and development of an Open Source solution for medical imaging.
OsiriX project started in 2004 in California, USA.
The team returned to Geneva and pursued the development of the OsiriX platform for advanced image processing competing with high-end commercial systems. The international success and wide adoption of this new Open Source platform has lead to new paradigm of software development in the medical community with a trend toward sharing and cooperation in the development of medical software applications.
Driven by their success, the OsiriX team elected to create a Foundation to support and promote the development of Open Source software in medicine.
