DICOM PS3.11 2021e - Media Storage Application Profiles

L ZIP File Over Email Interchange Profiles (Normative)

L.1 Profile Identification

This Annex defines three Application Profiles for interchange of a DICOM Data Set, encapsulated in a ZIP File, through email.

Two Application Profiles support all defined Media Storage SOP Classes. These are intended to be used for the interchange of Composite SOP Instances via email for general purpose applications. Objects from multiple modalities may be included on the same email. The email may also include non-DICOM objects. One of these general profiles supports encryption of the email.

A detailed list of the Media Storage SOP Classes is defined in PS3.4

The other application profile is specialized for dental applications and adds mandatory requirements for dental images to the general secure email profile.

The specific Application Profiles are shown in Table L.1-1:
