  • Add detailed dates to 2008-2009 development timeline
  • [Timeline] updated with new deadlines
  • Action Item: Chris Carr will reissue call for Brief Profile Proposals with due date of Sept. 15
  • Action Item: Schedule Technical Committee face-to-face in November at RSNA HQ
  • Basic Image Review
  • Addresses demands for standardized baseline viewer by AMA, AANS, ACR, etc.
  • Dovetails with PDI to allow access to images for referring physicians
  • Profile would set baseline functional criteria and set some broad parameters for user interface
  • Physician groups may still persist in seeking development of a mandatory baseline viewer
  • Profile development challenge will be organizing participants and gaining satisfactory consensus (while avoiding "buttonology")
  • Goal is to have event to evaluate viewers at AANS meeting in April
  • David Clunie volunteers to help draft supplement
  • Initial view is that this is a small to medium piece of work
  • PDI Extensions
  • Expands PDI to address other kinds of media--removable USB media and DVD
  • Low to medium effort: may be set of CPs to PDI or new version of profile
  • XDS-I Using XDS.b Technology
  • Scope of current profile is limited to upgrading the technology for publishing and retrieving manifests from XDS.a-based to XDS.b
  • DICOM WG10 is now working on Web services-based transfer protocols to be published in 2009
  • Intent would be to replace the transfer protocol sections of XDS-I profile when the new DICOM Web services become available
  • Question is whether security details ought to be included/referenced; eg, is XUA available for prime time
  • Medium to large effort; definitely a distinct profile supplement rather than CPs
  • Enhanced DICOM Image
  • Enables interoperability of applications at a higher level; see 5 use cases defined
  • IHE might specify display behavior that makes use of the new objects
  • Important to get domain experts, including workstation vendors
  • Medium-sized piece of work
  • Missing Brief Proposals
  • Chris Lindop may assume that the updated profile has a slot
  • Action Item: Chris Carr will solicit a proposal from Chris Lindop for review
  • Radiology Reporting
  • RSNA committee in place to develop report templates for common radiology procedures
  • At some point, this committee's work will need to be encoded in structured documents and addressed in radiology reporting workflow
  • Action Item: Chris Carr will ask Drs. Kahn and Langlotz about their timeline plans and when to expect work that may need coordination with IHE Radiology
  • Mammography Rad-Tech Communication
  • Drs. Ellis and Zuley have suggested developing a white paper on bi-directional interface
  • Action Item: Chris Carr will contact them and suggest that they submit a brief proposal on the topic
  • Next Planning Cmte Tcon: Weds, Sept. 17, 8:30-9:30am CDT
