Introduction

The caBIG® Annotation and Image Markup (AIM) information model can be used to store image annotations and markups using well-defined common data elements and controlled terminologies. The project has software tools to capture and create AIM annotations. The AIM Template Builder (ATB) assists clinicians, image researchers, or clinical trial study designers in creating a set of controlled questions and related answers to each question for a particular type of imaging study, without requiring knowledge of the AIM information model. A study’s image interpreters can make simple and constrained annotations in a structured format based on AIM templates. These templates contain a vast amount of knowledge and expertise from imaging esxpertsexperts.

Sharing AIM templates requires ATB users to share an AIM template by e-mail, CD/DVD and/or USB drive. These methods may not be convenient for exchanging AIM templates.The AIM the AIM Template Service (ATS), which stores AIM templates on the Internet. ATS allows AIM users using the ATB and /or the ATS web interface interfaces to upload, search, and download shared AIM templates. It also allows templates owners to make a template private or share a set of AIM templates with the larger ATS user community.
