• Is it secure to send my data?

    Yes. All data is sent securely and make sure no critical or patient information is sent to us by accepting only NIFTI. Results are kept for at least 15 days to ensure the results are available for longer.


  • Are all the algorithms fully automated?

    Hopefully yes. However, we expect data with correct header orientation (Left-Right, Anterior-Posterior, Superior-Inferior) and of an acceptable quality. Unfortunately, we cannot guaranty that all the algorithms will work with the data. If something is not working, please contact us and we will try to help you.


  • Can I send any kind of data?

    No, you can't. Read carefully the specifications for each algorithm, as they state the specific data that should be used as an input. If bad data is given to the algorithm, bad data will come out.


  • One algorithm has disappeared. Why?

    Yes, it can happen. The website currently runs on a distributed network, where different nodes are responsible to specific algorithms. If a certain node is off, then the algorithm will automatically disappear from the webpage.


  • How does it work?

    When you send the data, we redirect them to a specific local node that runs the selected algorithm. Once the data is copied to the node, your request is queued in a FIFO queue. When the calculation is done, the daemon fetches the results and sends them to the webserver, and the webserver immediately sends an email to you.


  • I like the service, but the queuing is too long. Can you make it faster?

    We can. Please send us an email and we can discuss how to move forward.


  • I like one of the algoritms. Can I install it locally?

    It will depend on the algorithm. Source code for most, if not all the algorithms is available online. However, some algorithms require training data that might not be available publically. Please contact us and we'll try our best to help you.


  • How many people have used this tool?

    258 different users have send data to NiftyWeb. These are the current numbers of request per algorithm and email domain:
