An overview of the latest progress of the DICOM standard from the recent base standard meeting
The SOP Classes in this document are defined to record how a Radio Therapy treatment was performed.
The following IODs are introduces:
This Supplement introduces SOP Classes for storage of neurophysiology waveforms by adding the related neurophysiology IODs and the necessary neurophysiology waveform context groups.
This Supplement adds the following SOP Classes:
This Supplement defines a pair of storage SOP Classes to distribute defined XA protocols and to record performed XA protocols:
This Supplement introduces a new IOD and a new storage SOP for encoding and storing dermoscopic images.
Dermoscopy is a diagnostic technique that enables visualization of the morphological structures of the skin.
Dermoscopy (also known as dermatoscopy and epiluminescence microscopy) is a non-invasive, in vivo skin examination that has demonstrated to be an important aid in the early recognition of malignant melanoma and other skin tumors.
Dermoscopy is also used for disease conditions (e.g. inflammatory) other than skin cancer.
A dermoscope is hand-held device that consists of magnifier and light source.
Emitted light can be polarized light or non-polarized. Dermoscopy using non-polarized light require direct contact between the skin and the device.
For direct contact dermoscopy an immersion medium is placed on the skin surface and a glass plate on the dermoscope is placed directly against the skin.
Non-contact dermoscopy does not require the dermoscope to be in contact with the skin surface.
Three techniques are used in dermoscopy:
This Supplement creates a structured report with the necessary flexibility to address cone-beam CT acquisitions.
This generic radiation description can represent previously addressed acquisition types:
