Medical image Network Enterprise (MiNE) is a scalable, community-defined e-infrastructure with the primary objective of housing an electronic image-based inventory and data warehouse. MiNE also provides related tools for research and education, to support and encourage the University of Toronto research community. MiNE advocates the efficient use and privacy-sensitive sharing of existing research and clinical image data.
