Quantitative Imaging Biomarkers Alliance (QIBA)
QIBA Mission: Improve the value and practicality of quantitative imaging biomarkers by reducing variability across devices, sites, patients, and time.
- QIBA Profiles standardize methods to create biomarkers that meet a claimed performance (accurate and reproducible).
- QIBA advances quantitative imaging in clinical trials and clinical practice.
- QIBA engages researchers, healthcare professionals and industry.

QIBA is Transitioning to QUIC!
Over the past 16 years, RSNA QIBA has become recognized as a community of representatives of healthcare professionals, medical associations, government regulatory agencies, pharmaceutical and scanner industries, conducting numerous groundwork studies, working on metrology underpinnings, and developing consensus among experts in the field to create rigorous quantitative imaging Profiles. Since its creation, QIBA’s work has developed and demonstrated the value and practicality of quantitative imaging biomarkers, nationally and internationally. The next stage in this evolution is to expand RSNA’s quantitative imaging activities beyond development of Profiles, to work with stakeholders to focus on adoption and implementation in clinical trials and practice. The RSNA Board of Directors has created a Quantitative Imaging Committee (QUIC) to oversee this initiative. The QUIC will be comprised of radiologists, physicists, and other thought leaders from stakeholder groups, including industry, government, and partner organizations. Answers to the FAQ submitted by QIBA members are provided below.
