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).

Technologists benefit from QIBA by:

  • Having standardized protocols and QA procedures to follow
  • Acquiring imaging data in a way that enables extraction of quantitative data
  • Facilitating improved care of the patient through reproducible quantitative analysis
  • Aligning data acquisition across sites that facilitates cross-comparison and permits performance assessment

Technologists participate in QIBA Profiles by:

  • meeting the requirements (performing tasks and achieving performance targets) assigned to the Technologist or Scanner Operator actors in a given QIBA Profile
  • assessing their conformance as described in the QIBA Profile checklist
  • documenting their conformance by self-attestation or credentialing service
  • supporting conformance of their site
