Paper Abstract

A major contribution to improving interoperability of medical imaging systems is made by DICOM. This standard focuses on tasks related to the creation of the results of medical imaging procedures and supports facilities corresponding to those available to the recipient of a photographic negative, i.e. some possibility of post processing. End users increasingly expect to have access to medical images but normally require only facilities corresponding to those of the recipient of a photographic print. There is currently no simple format that supports clinical needs and is generally accepted as appropriate for use by end user systems. In this paper we compare the requirements for end user medical image access with those supported by the Basic Image Interchange Format standard (ISO/IEC 12087-5:1998(E)).
