IHE seeks comment on new imaging, IT standards

Some updates on IHE,

The Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) Radiology Technical Committee has released new supplements to the IHE Radiology Technical Framework, which define specific implementations of established standards to achieve effective systems integration and facilitate appropriate sharing of medical information.

The new upplements available for public viewing are:
• Cross-enterprise Document Sharing for Imaging (XDS-I.b)
• Basic Image Review (BIR)
• Extensions to the Portable Data for Imaging (PDI) Integration Profile
• MR Diffusion Imaging (MDI)
• CT/MR Perfusion Imaging with Contrast (PIC)

The IHE Technical Frameworks are a resource for users, developers and implementers of healthcare imaging and information systems. The Technical Frameworks are expanded annually, after a period of public comment, and maintained regularly by the IHE Technical Committees through the identification and correction of errata.

The public comment is open until May 1, 2009. All comments submitted will be considered by the Technical Committee in refining the Trial Implementation versions, to be published in June 2009.
