• Get Involved with RadLex

  • How can I use RadLex in my practice?

    RadLex is freely available for download and use in clinical, research and educational applications. In addition, radiologists and developers of radiology reporting systems can incorporate RadLex terms into their diagnostic reports by adopting the RSNA reporting templates.

    Experts in radiology and medical informatics are invited to participate in the development and curation of RadLex. Comments on RadLex can be submitted to radlexfeedback@rsna.org. To express interest in volunteering for the RadLex committees, contact ric@rsna.org.

  • Committees and Members

  • The RadLex project is led by a steering committee of experts in radiology informatics and medical terminologies and overseen by the RSNA Radiology Informatics Committee. In 2005, six RadLex organ system committees were formed in collaboration with more than 30 radiology professional and standards organizations, including ACR, DICOM, and IHE. In 2007, six additional committees were recruited, each focusing on a specific imaging modality. These committees support the steering committee in the ongoing development and curation of RadLex.
