RSNA Image Share is a network created to enable radiologists to share medical images with patients using personal health record (PHR) accounts. Image Share is a pilot project, funded by the National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) and administered by RSNA. It is used by patients at medical centers across the US.
Using CDs to give patients copies of the medical images and reports can be a cumbersome and frustrating process for radiology staff and patients alike. Image Share lets you use secure Internet technology to give your patients control over their records. They manage their information in secure PHR accounts and decide who to share them with.
Find out how your site can join the Image Share network by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Image Share gives you control over your medical images and radiology reports. It lets you build a secure online personal medical history and securely share your information with care providers. Tell your radiologists about the Image Share network and encourage them to get connected.
User support for patients already enrolled in the Image Share network is available at email@example.com | Toll-free: 1-855-IM-SHARING (467-4274).

The Image Share network project provides the tools to link radiology systems (PACS and RIS) at any site to the network. A device called the Edge Server gathers images and reports and places them in secure digital package. It gives patients a unique security key they use to retrieve this information into their PHR accounts. Download the Edge Server application and its source code and documentation on the developer’s page: www.rsna.org/image_share_developers.
