IHE to Publish New Radiology Workflow Profiles for 2023
IHE Radiology developed two new interoperability specifications (IHE profiles) this year designed to streamline radiology workflow. The profiles have completed the publich comment phase of evaluation. They will be published for trial implementation later this summer and tested at IHE Connectathons starting this fall.
The Prioritization of Worklists for Reporting (POWR) profile standardizes the data interfaces to provide details relevant to the prioritization of studies on a medical imaging reading worklist.
The Integrated Reporting Applications (IRA) profile uses the FHIRcast standards to synchronize and share information between applications used together during reporting.
IHE addresses interoperability gaps within and across domains in health care, including radiology. RSNA has sponsored the IHE Radiology domain since 1998 and continues to support its ongoing work.

Registration Open for 2023 IHE-Europe Connectathon
Registration is open for the 2023 Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) European Connectathon taking place Sept. 25-29 in Rennes, France.
During this five-day event, vendors will complete real-time implementation testing of IHE interoperability specification in a supervised and structured environment. It is an opportunity for vendors to accomplish months' worth of connectivity work in a few days.
One specific focus of this year's European Connectathon will be testing IHE profiles for AI in radiology. Participants can also take advantage of the IHE Experience Days occurring during the Connectathon week.

New Hosts Sought for RSNA Global Learning Centers
Application Deadline for Host Sites: June 30
RSNA is accepting applications from eligible candidates to host the next Global Learning Center (GLC). The GLC program is designed to expand radiology education opportunities around the world.
RSNA is interested in partnering with established radiology departments based in low- or middle-income countries to create a GLC and improve the radiology department through education. GLC host locations must demonstrate a need for radiology education and resources and provide a designated team lead with English fluency who will serve as a primary contact.
RSNA is also seeking applications from RSNA volunteers to partner with the radiology department at the host GLC. After a GLC is selected, a team of up to four RSNA volunteers will be chosen to match the needs of the GLC. Teams will consist of a program director and team members.
Applications to serve as an RSNA team member are rolling for all GLC institutions. You must be an RSNA member to serve as a team member.
Both applications and additional details are available at RSNA.org/GLC.
Abdominal Trauma AI Challenge Planned
RSNA is planning a new AI Challenge focused on traumatic injuries of the abdomen. The event is expected to launch in late summer.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, traumatic injury occurs in people of all ages but is the leading cause of death in people younger than 44 years of age. Abdominal trauma resulting from injury often causes damage to the internal organs, internal bleeding and contusions or injuries to the bowel, spleen, liver and intestines.
The RSNA Abdominal AI Challenge aims to enhance diagnostic efficiency and accuracy and will consist of two phases: training and evaluation. Participants will be invited to develop models to detect and classify abdominal injuries on CT imaging. The models will be evaluated against an international dataset that is expected to contain over 5,000 annotated CT scans.
For more information about AI Challenges, visit RSNA.org/AI-Challenge or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
