A lack of validated, open-source code reduces the reliability of perfusion MRI, resulting in duplicate development. To address this problem, the Open Science Initiative for Perfusion Imaging (OSIPI) established a taskforce to collect, validate and harmonise such code. To date, 74 code contributions have been collected, with 14 of these tested. Source code and tests are published in an open-access repository. The OSIPI DCE/DSC-MRI code collection constitutes a valuable resource for researchers, and will ultimately be developed into a standardised, community-driven open-source code library.
