Swomed, une solution logicielle innovante au service des études fondamentales, précliniques et cliniques utilisant l’imagerie biomédicale

Swomed streamlines your research activities and keeps track of your data. Our solution brings mature, perennial and intregrative software designs from the manufacturing industry to the scientific lab. Its open architecture allows you to bring together all kinds of data and analytical tools within a secure, flexible and powerful environment, used by millions of workers worldwide.

CONSOLIDATE YOUR DATA

1 | MULTICENTRIC STUDIES

Industrial Product Lifecycle Management platforms are ideally suited for multi-site acquisition campaigns, in the context of national or international collaboration

The car industry has been using them for 20 years in order to centralize, share and back-up product design data from multiple sites distributed across the planet

2 | DEAL WITH DATA HETEROGENEITY

SwoMed makes industrial IT DICOM-compliant. It can be intergrated seamlesly within an imaging facility, and interact with existing imaging archives and vizualisation stations

But it goes far beyond the PACS : the underlying data model welcomes any kind of experimental or omics data

3 | STORE INFORMATION IN MEANINGFUL WAY

Swomed enables you to build a comprehensive terminology to label, sort and retrieve your data

Categories can be sourced  from dictionaries and ontologies developped by the different scientific communities (such as RadLex or NeuroLex in neuroimaging). Your own terms can also be mapped onto standard lexicons

KEEP TRACK OF YOUR DATA

1 | KEEP THINGS UNDER CONTROL

Our data model is object based. The data are organized into a large graph. Their provenance is represented in the most natural way : each derived dataset item is connected to its parents

Each intervention is recorded. Every datset is under version-control

2 | AUTOMATE LABORATORY PROCESSES

PLM softwares offer fine-grained access management within a safe IT architecture, trusted by the biggest industrial names

Automate the different tasks through business process implementation. Human or automated interventions are organized into workflows

3 | LEVERAGE COMPUTER CLUSTERS

Feed the archived data into parallel image processing or data analytical pipelines, and keep track of computation parameters and environments

GET MORE FROM YOUR DATA

1 | PREDICTIVE MODELS CREATION

Specify and fit statistical models or machine learning procedures in order to identify relevant associations and predict outcomes

Large array of methods to tackle a vast range of scientific problems with appropriate methods

2 | ENABLE SECONDARY USE OF LEGACY DATASETS

Make older data benefit from analytical breakthroughs

Run confirmatory and meta-analyses for increased statistical power and reliability

3 | WRITE ENRICHED SCIENTIFIC ARTICLES
End-to-end traceability, from the acquisition to the data table is a key asset for publication

Swomed enables you to put your bibliographical references right where they are relevant. The paper describing a laboratory protocol in use at the lab is never more than an item away from the results and actual protocol

 

The same applies to software tools and acquisition procedures
