h2. Tool Overview
{multi-excerpt:name=AIM}AIM is the first project to propose and create a "standard" means of adding information and knowledge to an image in a clinical environment, in order to create a future in which image content can be easily and automatically searched. AIM provides a solution to the following current imaging challenges:
* No agreed upon syntax for annotation and markup
* No agreed upon semantics to describe annotations
* No standard format (DICOM, XML, HL7, etc.) for annotations and markup

The solution is made up of various components, including the AIM Model, AIM Template Manager, and AIM Data Service. The AIM Model captures the descriptive information for an image, with user-generated graphical symbols placed on the image into a single common information source. The AIM Template Manager allows the user to generate a set of well-defined questions and answer choices to facilitate collecting the annotations and markup of an image in a XML document. The AIM Data Service then stores the XML documents in a database via caGrid.{multi-excerpt}
