Image and Information Management and role of standards
Image and Information Management (IIM) are addressed by DICOM, HL7 and IHE. Challenges for IIM are large, especially with regard to increase in data volume, new applications and the integration with new modalities. These are addressed in DICOM using DICOM Storage Commitment (STC), Modality Performed Procedure Step (MPPS), new SOP Class definitions, many tools for integration such as Key Images. HL7 addresses these with new, persistent object definitions, such as CDA and IHE addresses them by specifying many profiles.
