Paper Abstract

A project has been undertaken to prove the feasibility of a DICOM implementation that conforms to the modality interface user conformance profile (UCP). Five application entities have been defined. An implementation is currently underway based on the Radiological Society of North America '93 DICOM demonstration software developed by the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology. Two application entities implement the service class user functions specified by the modality interface UCP. The remaining three application entities implement service class provider functions. Image communication has been segregated from patient and study management functions. Based on preliminary findings we believe the DICOM modality interface User Conformance Profile to be feasible and implementable.
