An overview of the latest progress of the DICOM standard from the recent base standard meeting
This Supplement introduces the RT Radiation Set and representation of the C-Arm techniques.
An RT Radiation Set IOD defines a Radiotherapy Treatment Fraction as a collection of instances of RT Radiation IODs.
Further this supplement adds support for C-Arm Photon-Electron Radiation instances.
RT Radiation IODs represent different treatment modalities.
This supplement was voted as Final Text and will be part of the next edition of the standard.
The scope of this supplement is the introduction of new RT Radiation IODs for non-C-Arm treatment devices.
This supplement adds support for instances of the following RT devices:
This supplement extends the DICOM standard to better address encapsulation and color grouping of medical 3D manufacturing.
It also addresses new uses of medical DICOM data in the fields of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and Mixed Reality.
These extensions fall in three areas:
1) Support for a new 3D model type: Object File (OBJ)
2) Identification which models a part of a group intended for assembly into a larger object
3) Persistently indicating a preferred color for manufacturing or display of a model
The supplement will incorporate Object Files (OBJ) and any supporting Material Library Files (MTL) and texture map files (JPG or PNG) referenced from the OBJ files.
Grouping by Assembly and Component Color
Support is added to distinguish groups of models that are parts of the same assembly, from other models that are not.
This supplement was voted ready for Public Comment voting.
This supplement defines a generalized abstract API for sending and subscribing to notifications about RESTful resources.
The Notifications API defines Subscribers, Subscriptions, Events and Event Reports.
This supplement focuses on rewriting part two, DICOM conformance, of the standard.
The goal is to achieve better interoperability and machine processing of DICOM conformance statements.
It was considered advantageous if the template is a separate generated MS Word template.
Supplement 209 will be further presented and discussed with the Base Working Group in a coming meeting before Public Comment voting.
This supplement describes the storage of Paradigm Protocols, the Defined and Performed one. Also adding definition of a Stimuli object for Storage.
Paradigms are used to trigger stimuli used during functional scanning to capture the patient's brain activities.
The flow of events are:
This Supplement defines a pair of storage SOP Classes to distribute defined XA protocols and to record performed XA protocols.
This Supplement creates a structured report with the necessary flexibility to address cone-beam CT acquisitions.
This generic radiation description is capable of representing previously addressed acquisition types (Angiography, Mammography, CR/DR, CT).
Radiotherapy treatment dose and radiopharmaceutical dose are out of scope.
Supplement 214 will be further presented and discussed with the Base Working Group in a coming meeting before Public Comment voting.
This Supplement introduces a number of Services Classes for Storage of Neurophysiology Waveforms by adding the related Neurophysiology IODs and the necessary Neurophysiology Waveform Context Groups.
It adds a SOP Class to store routine (clinic) electroencephalography (EEG) data recording the electrical activity of the brain collected on the skull surface using electrode positions of the international 10/10 or 10/20 localization scheme.
It adds a SOP Class to store electromyography (EMG) data recording the electrical activity of skeletal muscles.
It adds a SOP Class to store electrooculography (EOG) data collected near the eyes recording eye movement.
It adds a SOP Class to store generic neurophysiology signals.
It adds a transfer syntax for DICOM waveforms using RED compression.
Supplement 217 will be further presented and discussed with the Base Working Group in a coming meeting before Public Comment voting.
This Supplement describes several new DICOM IODs and associated transfer syntaxes for the transport of real-time video, and/or audio, and associated medical data. These are referred to collectively as DICOM Real-Time Video (DICOM-RTV).
The supplement defines an new IP-based DICOM Service for the broadcasting of real-time video to subscribers with a quality of service which is compatible with the communication inside the operating room (OR).
Professional video (e.g., TV studios) equipment providers and users have defined in SMPTE (ST 2110 family of standards). ST 2110-10 uses a multicast model rather than a peer-to-peer communication model. DICOM-RTV builds upon ST 2110.
DICOM-RTV restricts real-time communication to uncompressed video.
This supplement will be further presented and reviewed in the base standard. It is sent out for Letter Ballot voting.
This Supplement defines a pair of storage SOP Classes to distribute defined MR protocols and to record performed MR protocols.
The two storage SOP Classes are:
