WHO IS QIBA®?
RSNA’s Quantitative Imaging Biomarkers Alliance (QIBA®) stakeholders include:
- clinical research community
- imaging equipment manufacturers
- pharmaceutical industry
- government agencies
- medical informatics companies
QIBA stakeholders ensure quantitative imaging results are:
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?
- 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

WHAT IS QIBA® PROFILE CONFORMANCE?
- QIBA conformance testing services and self-attestation procedures help clinical sites, imaging CROs (Core Labs), and scanner and analysis software vendors to achieve high-quality quantitative imaging results.
- Deliver high quality imaging measurements.
- Quantitatively identify, optimize, and monitor performance issues.
- QIBA Conformance Mark affirms high-performance, quantitative imaging capability.
