What is Imaging Informatics?

"Medical imaging informatics is a multidisciplinary field that intersects with the biological sciences, health services, information sciences, medical physics, and engineering.

Imaging informatics touches every aspect of the imaging chain from image creation and acquisition, to image distribution and management, to image storage and retrieval, to image processing, analysis and understanding, to image visualization and data navigation; to image interpretation, reporting, and communications. The field serves as the integrative catalyst for these processes and forms a bridge with imaging and other medical disciplines.

Imaging informatics professionals and scientists specializing in this evolving field are pioneers involved at the intersection of information science, imaging technology and healthcare and require clinical acumen as well as expert understanding of technology."
