Paper Abstract

DICOM semantics refers to the specification of meaning of DICOM messages exchanged between two DICOM-compliant systems. DICOM-compliant PACS networks may fail to achieve interoperability due to different variations in allowable DICOM semantics used by different implementors. We have specified the beginnings of a DICOM reference architecture by designing a generic PACS network, selecting certain PACS functions commonly implemented in DICOM application entities and making explicit assignments of various DICOM service classes to carry out the selected application level functionality. A generic PACS based on the reference architecture presented here is being implemented with the intention off providing Internet access to it for interoperability testing.
