  • RSNA Image Share

  • Image Share is a network created to enable radiologists to share medical images with patients using personal health record (PHR) accounts. It was created as a pilot project, funded by the National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) and administered by RSNA. It is used by patients at medical centers across the US.


    Using CDs to give patients copies of the medical images and reports is a cumbersome and frustrating process for radiology staff and patients alike. RSNA Image Share lets you use secure Internet technology to give your patients control over their records. They manage their information in secure PHR accounts and decide who to share them with. Find out how your site can join the RSNA Image Share Network by contacting imageshare@lists.rsna.org.


    RSNA Image Share gives patients control over their medical images and radiology reports. It lets them maintain their personal imaging history online and securely share information with care providers.

    Patients at sites participating in the Image Share Network can follow the simple instructions found here to access their images. Read our patient brochure to learn more about the network. User support for patients already enrolled in the RSNA Image Share Network is available at helpdesk@imsharing.org | Toll-free: 1-855-IM-SHARING (467-4274).


    The RSNA Image Share network project provides tools to securely connect a site’s radiology systems (PACS and RIS) to the network. Learn more here about getting connected and download the Edge Server and documentation.

    RSNA Image Share Validation Program

    In collaboration with the Sequoia Project, RSNA is proud to introduce the Image Share Validation Program, which will test the compliance of vendors’ systems to standards for exchange of medical images used in the RSNA Image Share Network. A pilot testing program will be performed in 2016. Learn more, register for testing and track the progress of the program here.
