Abstract
On March 12-13, 2008, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) hosted a workshop to address issues for classifying digital chest radiographs for patients with pneumoconioses. The international group of scientists in attendance heard from representatives of the International Labour Organization (ILO), the American College of Radiology (ACR), NIOSH, and academia. Expert presenters described current and future issues in digital radiography, especially as they relate to classification. The workshop participants broke into smaller groups to discuss (1) image acquisition, (2) image presentation, and (3) file interchange, and to develop recommendations for advancing digital classification for pneumoconioses.
