RSNA Sessions Showcase Next Generation of Image Sharing
Hard copy films, CDs … what's next? Annual meeting attendees who want to glimpse the future of image sharing will want to visit the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE®) Image Sharing Demonstration in Booth 1336 in South Building, Hall A, where they can learn about state-of-the art methods being deployed today to make medical images and related data available securely and conveniently. Demonstrations will detail how radiologic care centers can share images and reports with patients and healthcare providers through image-enabled personal health record accounts, how dose reports can be used to monitor patient radiation exposure, and how clinical image data can be processed and shared for use in clinical trials and teaching files. Demonstrations take place regularly during exhibit hours and feature systems developed for the RSNA Image Share network, vendors and research organizations.
In addition, the refresher course, "The RSNA Image Share Network—How It Operates and How to Put It into Your Office," on Wednesday from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. in Room S501ABC, will detail the goals and technical architecture of the RSNA Image Share project. Attendees interested in implementing Image Share at their sites are invited to attend a town hall meeting following the refresher course.
