AI Interoperability in Imaging White Paper Will Support AI in Medical Imaging

The final white paper on AI Interoperability in Imaging was released by the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) Radiology Technical Committee on October 12. The paper sets the landscape for artificial intelligence (AI) interoperability and function and provides “recipes” for standards based workflow.

“IHE compliance assures consumers that products have been tested to be interoperable with other products —across multiple vendor actors—helping to establish their trustworthiness,” said co-author Brian Bialecki, the American College of Radiology® (ACR®) representative on the committee. Systems developed according to IHE standards communicate with one another better, are easier to implement and enable care providers to be more effective.

The white paper provides a comprehensive map of the needs, problems and challenges that must be addressed to achieve an ecosystem of interoperable products that support all the processes and tasks that make up AI in Imaging.

The white paper is a joint effort between medical imaging societies, industry and the radiology community. Information about IHE participation can be found at IHE.
