Open Source in Imaging Informatics — Paul Nagy, PhD's introductory article in the November 2007 JDI Supplement on Open Source. The open source community within radiology is a vibrant collection of developers and users working on scores of collaborative projects with the goal of promoting the use of information technology within radiology for education, clinical, and research purposes. This community, which includes many commercial partners, has a rich history in supporting the success of the digital imaging and communication in medicine (DICOM) standard and today is pioneering interoperability limits by embracing the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise. This article describes only a small portion of the more successful open source applications and is written to help end users see these projects as practical aids for the imaging informaticist and picture archiving and communication system (PACS) administrator.
SIIM-Sponsored Education Session at HIMSS — For over a decade, SIIM has served as a co-sponsor/collaborating organization for the HIMSS Annual Meeting. Each year, SIIM organizes and presents an educational session at the conference.
