Welcome to Powertrain’s documentation!¶

Powertrain is not a new idea. Many groups around the world are attempting to create scalable systems for large-scale medical image processing. In this respect, Powertrain is simply yet another attempt at building such a system.

Powertrain relies on three separate systems:

  • REDCap, the web-based data-capture system from Vanderbilt.
  • XNAT, eXtensible Neuroimaging Archive Tool from WUSTL.
  • ACCRE, Vanderbilt’s compute cluster.
