About this book
Imaging Informatics Professionals (IIPs) have come to play an indispensable role in modern medicine, and the scope of this profession has grown far beyond the boundaries of the PACS. A successful IIP must not only understand the PACS itself, but also have knowledge of clinical workflow, a base in several medical specialties, and a solid IT capability regarding software interactions and networking. With the introduction of a certification test for the IIP position, a single source was needed to explain the fundamentals of imaging informatics and to demonstrate how those fundamentals are applied in everyday practice. Practical Imaging Informatics describes the foundations of information technology and clinical image management, details typical daily operations, and discusses rarer complications and issues. Written by world-renown experts from the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine, this book is an indispensable reference for the practicing IIP, those studying for a certification exam, and any professional who needs quick access to the nuts and bolts of imaging informatics.
Written for: Imaging informatics professionals (IIPs), those
studying for IIP certification, PACS administrators, IT professionals working
in medicine, physicians, informaticians, and hospital administrators.
