Leverages preexisting resources (e.g., intellectual capital, personnel, facilities, specimens, reagents, data) wherever possible; warrants access to RSNA resources and support.
Would uniquely benefit from the multi-stakeholder composition and approach of QIBA and could be feasibly executed under its policies e.g. resulting in extension or adoption in product development among hardware, software, or imaging agents. The biomarker has the support of the stakeholder community with the organizational impetus to sustain continued efforts.
