 Structured Annotation and Image Markup (AIM) Template and Toolsets: Hands-on Workshop (RSNA 2013)

P. Mongkolwat, J. Kirby, S. Talbot, V. Kleper

One of the major challenges associated with “big data” as it relates to imaging informatics is the lack of structured metadata for collecting image annotation information. The Annotation and Imaging Markup (AIM) version 4.0 information model captures pixel descriptions of an image interpreted by a human or machine with graphical drawings and related calculation results placed on the image into a single common information source. This course will demonstrate how the AIM project tools generate annotations and markup using coded terminologies in a way that automatically maintains the association to the images. The result is an interconnected suite of tools which allows researchers to easily generate minable structured metadata for research.
