SWGIT Document Archive**(under construction)

The following documents were published by the Scientific Working Group on Imaging Technology (SWGIT) and are hosted here for reference only. SWGDE's membership includes many former SWGIT members who have worked to update a number of documents listed below - where a newer SWGDE document exists, a separate link is provided to the current version on this website.

***IMPORTANT NOTE: The SWGIT terminated operations in May 2015 and the official website was removed soon following that time period. There is however a new UNOFFICIAL website that appears to look and feel like the original SWGIT website. This is NOT a real 'SWGIT' website and is NOT sponsored or authorized to act on behalf of SWGIT in any capacity. Please beware of your use of that site and any links on it that are provided.
