A successful IIP must not only understand the PACS itself, but also have knowledge of clinical workflow, a base in several medical specialties, and a solid IT capability regarding software interactions and networking. With the introduction of a certification test for the IIP position, a single source was needed to explain the fundamentals of imaging informatics and to demonstrate how those fundamentals are applied in everyday practice. Practical Imaging Informatics describes the foundations of information technology and clinical image management, details typical daily operations, and discusses rarer complications and issues.

Editorial Reviews

Aus den Rezensionen: "Barton F. Braustetter gelingt mit diesem Buch der Spagat zwischen einem praktischen Nachschlagewerk einerseits und einem ansprechenden und nützlichen Lehrbuch andererseits. ... Was das Buch ... so wertvoll macht, ist nicht nur der Inhalt, sondern auch die besondere Art und Weise der Darstellung ... Wichtige Informationen wie ... Definitionen oder Checklisten sind als farbig hinterlegte Kästen nicht zu übersehen. Am Ende jedes Kapitels findet sich zudem ein Fragebogen, mit dem der Leser seinen aktuellen Wissensstand überprüfen kann. Dadurch wird das Werk ... als Lehrbuch gerecht." (Lang, in: E-Health-Com, February/2010, Issue 1, S. 70)
