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).


Radiologists benefit from QIBA by:

  • having repeatable, comparable quantitative measurements to guide clinical decisions
  • facilitating improved patient care by means of reproducible quantitative analysis
  • facilitating comparison of data across sites that conform to QIBA Profiles
  • harmonizing standardized protocols and QA procedures for clinical practice and clinical trials


Radiologists participate in QIBA Profiles by:

  • meeting requirements assigned to the Radiologist in a given QIBA Profile
  • assessing their conformance as described in the QIBA Profile checklist
  • documenting their conformance in a formal QIBA Conformance Statement


Radiologists may also:

  • communicate conformance to clinical trials or accreditation bodies
  • advocate for the patient benefits of quantitative imaging and support QIBA conformance of their site
