      QIBA Logo

      QIBA® is now offering a new conformance testing service to help clinical sites demonstrate they can achieve high-quality quantitative imaging results.  A clinical site that achieves QIBA Profile specifications will receive a QIBA® Conformance Certification Mark that can be used to distinguish itself as performing quantitative imaging studies with high levels of precision.  Scanner and analysis software vendors can also obtain the QIBA® Conformance Certification Mark to demonstrate their specific medical device(s) or software has been tested and has demonstrated conformance with a given QIBA Profile.  QIBA Conformance Certification Services, including an image quality assessment phantom and online phantom analysis services, are currently only available for the QIBA CT Small Lung Nodule Volume Assessment and Monitoring in Low-Dose Screening Profile.

       

      QIBA Certification Mark

      Benefits of obtaining a QIBA® Conformance Certification Mark for a Clinical Site:

      • Confirm that your clinical site is delivering high quality CT lung nodule imaging measurements to patients.
      • Quantitatively identify, optimize and monitor any potential CT image quality performance issues.
      • Obtain high-quality measurements based on fundamental CT image quality characteristics and lung imaging protocols which can be useful when conducting clinical trials and algorithmic imaging research.
      • Promote your high-performance, quantitative imaging capability by posting the QIBA® Conformance Certification Mark to your website and imaging site materials.
      • Participation will help improve future CT lung cancer imaging guidelines.

      Benefits of obtaining a QIBA® Conformance Certification Mark for a Scanner or Software Vendor:

      • Demonstrate to your current and potential customers that your medical device or software meets the thorough specifications outlined in a QIBA® Profile.
      • Annually verify the performance of your medical device helping ensure that the high performance remains consistent under a variety of acquisition and measurement conditions.
      • Provide quantitative and independently confirmed device data to your customers on the best methods and protocols to use with your medical device.
      • Promote your high-performance, quantitative imaging capability by posting the QIBA® Conformance Certification Mark to your medical device or software web pages and promotional materials.
      • Participation will help improve future CT lung cancer imaging guidelines.
