DICOM Conformance Statements

DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) is an industry standard for image data communication intended to facilitate the communication of information between various systems.

Connectivity between two pieces of equipment can be evaluated ahead of time by the use of the equipment’s DICOM Conformance Statements. Conformance statements provide a foundation to determine connectivity and assess the potential interoperability of two products, and in some cases, identify potential problems without ever having them physically connected.
