Todd has been working in DICOM/IHE interoperability for more than 15 years. In 1996 he developed one of the first toolkits, implementing the client and the server sides of Image Storage with lossless and lossy compression, Query Retrieve and Modality Work list as well as Print SCU. He participated in DICOM WG11 and contributed to the community on DICOM news group during the pioneering stages of the first commercial PACS architectures and implementations.


His results were reported on Radiology’98 in Birmingham. Later he acquired experience in validating DICOM implementations and training for Merge Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare, Philips and other companies worldwide as well as in project managing PACS deployment.

While working in the area of molecular imaging, Todd acquired knowledge and understanding in the areas of Nuclear Medicine (PET and SPECT imaging), RT Planning as well as Image Registration. He was one of the driving forces for improving interoperability in these areas. He participated in WG3 for Enhanced PET and was the draft author of the Image Fusion Profile (FUS) in IHE.

In 2007 Todd became an independent consultant providing training and consultancy for medical companies, healthcare institutions and individuals.
