(DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING) -- Number of Certified Imaging Informatics Professionals reaches 612
With eight rounds of the American Board of Imaging Informatics exam since its June 2007 debut, 612 individuals have earned the Certified Imaging Informatics Professional designation.
The growing importance of imaging informatics has generated increasing demand for certification of the radiologic technology and information technology professionals working in the field. Seventy-one Certified Imaging Informatics Professionals (CIIPs) joined the ranks following the most recent exam on Sept. 24.
The next exam is scheduled for March 25. Deadline for applications is Jan. 20.
The American Board of Imaging Informatics (ABII) exam assesses candidates in several key areas of knowledge, with image management and information technology comprising about one-third of the 150 items. Remaining questions focus on operations, communications, systems management, clinical engineering, medical informatics, procurement, project management, and training and education.
The Board of Trustees of ABII, along with its two appointing organizations–the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine, and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists–extended their congratulations to those who have earned the CIIP designation.
