Paper Abstract

In order to promote the development of PACS it is necessary to develop standards for medical image exchange. This paper will present a draft for the medical standard format of a magnetic tape for digital image exchange from the Japan Medical Industries Committee. This format consists of three sections; a closed directory, data blocks and an open directory. The closed directory would include patient directories and image directories. The data blocks include a header and frame for each block. Each header comprises an image size definition record,a directory record, a link information record, a location and time information record, comment record, a modality dependent condition record and an additional information record. The image size definition record is unaltered from the form specified in the standard format of magnetic tapes for digital image exchange issued in 1976 by the Image Processing Committee of the Information Proccessing Society of Japan[1]. Medical information is added to the comment area of the header to make this format applicable for the recording of medical images of any of the current imaging modalities.
