• RSNA Image Share

  • Image Share DemoRSNA Image Share is a network created to enable radiologists to share medical images with patients using personal health record (PHR) accounts. RSNA 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. RSNA 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 RSNA Image Share network by contacting imageshare@rsna.org.

    RSNA 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 RSNA Image Share network and encourage them to get connected.

    User support for patients already enrolled in the RSNA Image Share network is available at  helpdesk@imsharing.org | Toll-free: 1-855-IM-SHARING1-855-IM-SHARING (467-4274).

    RSNA Image Sharing/IHE Demonstration 2014: Call for Participants

    Throughout its history, RSNA has showcased innovations in radiologic science and technology. RSNA 2014 will once again feature a demonstration of important breakthroughs in imaging informatics. This year's RSNA Image Sharing/IHE demonstration will feature:

    • Patient-focused image sharing through the RSNA Image Share network, a pilot project funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering
    • Structured reporting using RSNA RadReport reporting templates, RadLex terminology and the IHE MRRT profile
    • Communication of actionable findings to referring physicians using report templates and video communication

    Qualified organizations are invited to participate and demonstrate their ability to support these innovations to RSNA's large and diverse global audience. Interested organizations are asked to respond by Friday, July 25. Click here for details

    The RSNA 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.
