Special Presentation

  • The RSNA/Sequoia Image Share Validation Program (Didi Davis)
  • The RSNA Image Share Validation Program provides a conformity assessment program that sets the standards for consistency in the marketplace. The Image Share Validation Program tests the compliance of vendor systems using IHE Radiology domain standards determined most effective for accurate and efficient exchange of medical images. The RSNA Image Share Validation Program benefits patients and providers with improved efficiency, reduced costs, enhanced quality of care, and standards-based interoperability to inspire innovation. The RSNA Image Share Validation Program is leveraged in the US, but the same conformity assessment testing tooling, test data and test scripts have been incorporated into the IHE Conformity Assessment Scheme (CAS) and a reciprocity process is in place between the two programs.
