A DICOM Conformance Statement Template (Normative)

This Annex is a template that shall be used to generate a DICOM Conformance Statement. The document is hierarchically structured in three different levels:

Annexes are provided to specify the Object descriptions (IODs), with specifics about the field usage as well as the data dictionaries.


The numbering scheme for numbering paragraphs in this document is to be used as a guideline in preparing the outline of the Conformance Statement. Although strongly encouraged, the Conformance Statement is not required to have exactly the same paragraph numbers because a particular Conformance Statement might have special considerations, which will cause the outline to differ in certain details from the outline of this document. In addition, a vendor might have internal company guidelines prescribing a specific format. Note however, that the overall structure, tables, definition of variables and information such as headers, should be strictly followed.
