IHE Radiology was formed in 1998 to address issues of interoperability and information sharing that impact the quality of care in medical imaging. It has developed and
documented standards-based solutions to these problems and organized testing and education to foster their adoption. IHE solutions are now available
in hundreds of commercial radiology-related information systems and are implemented in care sites around the world.
IHE Radiology is sponsored by the Radiological Society of North America.
IHE Radiology integration profiles are specified in detail in the IHE Radiology Technical Framework. These profiles include:
Profiles for Workflow
Profiles for Content
Profiles for Presentation
Profiles for Infrastructure
The IHE Radiology
Planning and Technical Committees are responsible for developing IHE
integration profiles, maintaining the IHE Radiology Technical Framework , and planning deployment activities, such as
testing events and educational programs, in the domain of radiology. The
committees are composed of users and developers of imaging and information
systems. The membership of these and other IHE domain committees, along
with schedules of activities, meeting agendas and minutes and working documents
can be found in the Radiology section of the IHE Wiki.
are composed of representatives of stakeholder organizations who are users or
developers of radiology-related healthcare IT systems. The committees are
international in scope. All qualified stakeholders are invited to
Participation is open and voluntary, but in order to remain a voting committee
member, participants must take part regularly in committee meetings and
teleconferences and perform committee assignments. All IHE committee
participants serve as representatives of IHE Member Organizations. Information on becoming an IHE Member Organization is available on
the IHE Governance page. You can contact the secretary of the IHE ITI committees via email
Email communication among participants in the committees takes place through
Google Groups maintained for this purpose. You can request an invitation to

Mammography Subcommittee of the IHE Radiology Technical Committee brings
together users and developers of mammography imaging and information
systems. They define standards-based solutions, called integration
profiles, to address interoperability and information sharing problems that
impact patient care in mammography. IHE drives the adoption of integration
profiles by building industry consensus, educating developers and users, and
testing and demonstrating systems that conform to them.
The Mammography Image Integration Profile (MAMMO) specifies how DICOM Mammography images and evidence objects are created, exchanged and used. It is currently published in a Trial Implementation draft, which will be used for testing at
Connectathons in 2007. Go to download and submit comments on this supplement to the IHE Technical Framework.
IHE has published a brochure, Going Digital: An IHE Guide for Mammography , which provides answers to commonly asked questions about using IHE to make the transition to digital mammography. IHE has also published a more detailed reference, the Mammography User's Handbook.
