About MITA Standards:

MITA, through its parent organization, NEMA, is an ANSI-accredited standards developer. NEMA’s first X-ray standard was published in 1926, meaning that it has been developing medical imaging standards for more than 90 years. MITA’s standards development program includes not only development of MITA standards, but serving as the secretariat for DICOM and three US Technical Advisory Groups to the IEC (SC62B, SC62C and TC87). As an organization, MITA is dedicated to ensuring that standards continue to meet ever shifting market needs while avoiding conflict and duplication.

MITA utilizes the NEMA Standardization Policies and Procedures Manual.

MITA Technical Advisory Committees:

MITA is the administrator for three USNC Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) to the IEC:

  • SC 62B: Diagnostic Imaging Equipment
  • SC 62C: Equipment for Radiotherapy, Nuclear Medicine and Radiation Dosimetry
  • TC 87: Ultrasonics

These groups are responsible for the development of the US positions related to technical issues being addressed by these committees and subcommittees. Participation in TAGs is open to all US interested parties. For additional information please contact Carolyn Hull for SC 62B, SC 62C , and TC 87.
