September 2012 Exam Results

October 22, 2012 — Growing importance of imaging informatics has generated increasing demand for certification of the medical imaging and IT professionals working in the field, and the American Board of Imaging Informatics (ABII) has been responding to the need.

With 12 administrations of the ABII exam since its June 2007 debut, 934 individuals have earned the CIIP (Certified Imaging Informatics Professional) designation. Ninety -one CIIPs joined the ranks following the most recent exam administration on September 28, 2012.

The next administration is scheduled for March 22, 2013, with applications due by January 21, 2013.

The 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.

“ABII certification demonstrates an analytical ability to understand advanced informatics concepts,” notes ABII Board Chair Paul G. Nagy, Ph.D., CIIP, “along with a clinical knowledge to work alongside clinical staff.”
