Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine

Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) is an international standard for medical imaging created by both the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) and the American College of Radiology. This international standard was developed for CAT scan and MRI scan images, but it is now under the authorization of the DICOM Standards Committee. Currently, DICOM is used as a guideline for imaging in a variety of medical fields such as dentistry, pathology, radiology and cardiology. It sets up appropriate formats to be used for medical images to ensure that the image has the quality necessary for clinical use. Since this standard is common internationally, it allows seamless transferring of images.
