QIBA stakeholders ensure quantitative imaging results are:

  • Consistent
  • Achievable
  • Reliable
  • Validated

THE IMPORTANCE OF QUANTITATIVE IMAGING (QI)

QI develops, standardizes, and optimizes:

  • Anatomical, functional, and molecular imaging acquisition protocols
  • Data analyses
  • Display methods
  • Reporting structures
  • Who is QIBA?
  • Why is QI important?


QIBA’s® ROLE

  • Efficient and validated methods for quantifying biomedical imaging results are required for optimal patient care, clinical research, and new therapy development.
  • QIBA accelerates the development and adoption of hardware and software standards needed to achieve accurate and reproducible, quantitative (measurable) results from imaging methods.

WHAT ARE QIBA® PROFILES?

  • QIBA Profiles standardize methods to create biomarkers that meet a claimed performance (accurate and reproducible).
  • Profiles are intended for use by a broad audience; applications include:
  • Discovery science – Identify predictive biomarkers of disease
  • Clinical trials – Quantify treatment outcome
  • Clinical practice – Comparable results from different sites and different times
