DICOM Grid’s DG ImageShare Launched

Service for medical image sharing now available to patients and medical centers across the US

November 6, 2013  – The web-based service DG ImageShare offers a unified communication platform for medical image sharing to participants in the RSNA Image Share project. It allows patients, as well as providers, to quickly access, view, and share imaging and other medical records online.

The secure, electronic sharing of images provides a simple alternative to image distribution via CD and offers significant benefits to both patients and care providers. Using DG ImageShare, patients can access copies of their medical images—X-Rays, CTs, MRIs and ultrasounds—and keep them in online Personal Health Record (PHR) accounts. A three-step process guides patients through the account creation. Once an account is set-up, patients can login at any time to upload and view exams, and share imaging information with specialists.  Providers can use the platform to easily retrieve patient exams, which can improve time-to-care delivery and reduce the need for duplicate and unnecessary procedures.

The RSNA Image Share project, which is funded by the National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), is designed to help patients take control of their medical images and reports. Since its launch in 2009 it has significantly widened its reach.

DG Imageshare is now available to all US-based medical centers and patients enrolled in the RSNA Image Share project.
