I.6 Support of Character Sets

All EXAMPLE-WADO-SERVICEs support Unicode UTF-8 for all WS transactions. The EXAMPLE-WADO-SERVICE does not convert character sets when returning SOP Instances using DICOM encoding. The original DICOM encoded character sets are preserved. When a PDF encoding is returned, character set conversion is performed and the PDF is returned with a UTF-8 encoding. JPEG renderings, will also utilize UTF-8 encoding for internal labels.

See conformance claim for EXAMPLE-PACS-ARCHIVE for character sets used within the DICOM instances.
