DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) is an industry standard for image data communication 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 by the use of the equipment's DICOM Conformance Statements. In the case of radiotherapy applications, determining system interoperability often requires extensive testing. Nevertheless, conformance statements provide a foundation to determine connectivity and assess the potential inter operability 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 imaged-based products.
