QIBA Mission: Improve the value and practicality of quantitative imaging biomarkers by reducing variability across devices, sites, patients, and time.

QIBA develops Profile documents that standardize methods for creating a specific biomarker with predictable performance (accuracy and reproducibility).


Vendors of imaging devices benefit from QIBA Profiles by:

  • appealing to their customers with products that meet QIBA requirements and produce repeatable, comparable measurements


Imaging Device Vendors participate in QIBA Profiles by:

  • implementing features and meeting performance requirements assigned to the Acquisition Modality (and sometimes Reconstruction Software) in a given QIBA Profile
  • assessing their conformance as described in the QIBA Profile checklist
  • publishing a formal QIBA Conformance Statement documenting their product conformance to a given QIBA profile


Imaging Device Vendors may also:

  • communicate conformance to customers by providing the QIBA Conformance Statement
  • help customers assess their own conformance to the QIBA profile
