- Compiled by the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM)
- Fully updated with latest technological considerations, including artificial intelligence and machine learning
- Provides detailed, comprehensive information on medical imaging informatics and PACS
- Written by world-renown experts
This new edition is a comprehensive source of imaging informatics fundamentals and how those fundamentals are applied in everyday practice.
Imaging Informatics Professionals (IIPs) play a critical role in healthcare, and the scope of the profession has grown far beyond the boundaries of the PACS. A successful IIP must understand the PACS itself and all the software systems networked together in the medical environment. Additionally, an IIP must know the workflows of all the imaging team members, have a base in several medical specialties and be fully capable in the realm of information technology.Practical Imaging Informatics
has been reorganized to follow a logical progression from basic background information on IT and clinical image management, through daily operations and troubleshooting, to long-term planning. The book has been fully updated to include the latest technologies and procedures, including artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Written by a team of renowned international authors from the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine and the European Society of Medical Imaging Informatics, this book is an indispensable reference for the practicing IIP. In addition, it is an ideal guide for those studying for a certification exam, biomedical informaticians, trainees with an interest in informatics, and any professional who needs quick access to the nuts and bolts of imaging informatics.Contents Overview
