DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) is an industry standard for image-data communication that is intended to facilitate the communication of information between various systems. More recently, DICOM RT has been defined to specify the structures or objects associated with radiotherapy to facilitate the communication of plan information throughout the radiotherapy department.
Connectivity between two pieces of equipment can be evaluated ahead of time through the use of the equipment's DICOM Conformance Statements. In the case of radiotherapy applications, determining the system interoperability often requires extensive testing. Nevertheless, conformance statements provide a foundation to determine the connectivity and assess the potential interoperability of two products, and in some cases, identify potential problems without ever having them physically connected.
Below are Varian's DICOM Conformance Statements for the current image-based products.
