Paper Abstract

The ACR-NEMA Digital Imaging and Communications Standard specifies layered protocols for exchange of images and commands between two devices. The protocol specifies that the devices communicate as peers. To connect imaging devices to an open network, network interface equipment must support the protocols from physical to transport layers. These protocols have been implemented in network interface units. The implementation of specific protocol requirements will be described, including the virtual channels and end-to-end connection service. Integration with a network protocol will be discussed, and early performance results will be presented.
