Imaging Network Ontario is an initiative created in response to a request by the Ontario Research Development Challenge Fund for assistance in harmonizing its investments in imaging research. The establishment of the Imaging Network Ontario provides a means of harnessing and focusing the intellectual and innovative capabilities at Ontario universities in partnerships with emerging and established medical imaging companies to create a strong and sustainable internationally competitive imaging industry based on scientific excellence in Ontario.
