Abstract Imaging informatics, as part of the wider emerging discipline of medical informatics, remains poorly defined. However, many educators agree that formalized and flexible training in the collection, display, manipulation, storage, retrieval, and communication of imaging data, as well as the integration of these data into larger databases, should be introduced into the period of radiology residency training. The authors review the importance of such training to those individuals now preparing for clinical practice and research. They describe a sample imaging informatics curriculum that can be incorporated into a 4-year radiology residency program and the significance of such training in establishing a new subdiscipline focusing on imaging information technologies.
