Paper Abstract

The goal of the DICOM standard is to define a standard network interface and data model for imaging devices from various vendors. DICOM does not specify implementation-specific requirements and does not specify a testing procedure to assess an implementations conformance to the standard. The conformance statements defined in the DICOM standard only allow a user to determine that which optional components are supported by the implementation. As the DICOM 3.0 standard becomes the official standard in the medical imaging field, there are many available systems and software which support DICOM. But, user can't get any other information about the system and the software other than the conformance which the several vendors offer. Because of this, it is necessary that one test the conformance of the system and the software of vendors and offer the results to both users and vendors. We implement the Test Station of the DICOM 3.0 standard. The main purpose of the Test Station is to measure the reliability of the vendors software and to report this for those using the suggestion.
