PACS Article #3 - The ACR-NEMA Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Standard has been developed to meet the needs of manufacturers and users of medical imaging equipment for interconnection of devices on standard networks. Its multiple parts provide a means for expansion and updating, and the design of the standard was aimed at allowing simplified development for all types of medical imaging. DICOM also provides a means by which users of imaging equipment may assess whether two devices claiming conformance will be able to exchange meaningful information. The future additions to DICOM include support for creation of files on removable media (such as optical disks or high-capacity magnetic tape), new data structures for x-ray angiography, and extended hard copy print management. The 1993 demonstration at info RAD is expanded over that of 1992 and shows different manufacturer implementations and communications using both the DICOM information objects and the services that support them.
