QIBA® Launches Conformance Testing Service

In partnership with Accumetra, Quantitative Imaging Biomarkers Alliance (QIBA) is rolling out a new conformance testing service to help clinical sites demonstrate that they can achieve high-quality quantitative imaging results. QIBA is an RSNA initiative to advance quantitative imaging and the use of imaging biomarkers in clinical practice and clinical trials by engaging health care professionals, researchers and industry.

Clinical sites that achieve QIBA Profile specifications will receive a QIBA Conformance Certification Mark to distinguish themselves as performing quantitative imaging studies with a high level of precision. Scanner and analysis software vendors can also obtain the certification mark to demonstrate that their specific product has been thoroughly tested and has demonstrated conformance with a QIBA Profile. This service is currently limited to the CT Small Lung Nodule Profile, which has particular relevance to low-dose lung cancer screening.
