Paper Abstract

The challenge to archiving images in the modern radiology department arises from the need to interface heterogeneous modalities. The DICOM 3 standard is an industry-wide attempt to produce a homogeneous solution to this problem. Our initial attempt at a unified archive server (Frost et al., 1994) demonstrated that there were limitations imposed by vendor interpretation of the DICOM standard, and initial DICOM toolkit solutions. More rigorous compliance by the vendors to the adopted DICOM standard has allowed the development of a uniform archive server process. As new DICOM conferment equipment is added to the Department of Radiology, the identical archive server process can be utilized, thus significantly reducing the installation, maintenance, and operational costs.
