A comprehensive review of the features and implementation of the DICOM Structured Reporting extension to the DICOM Standard.
DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) is the ubiquitous standard in the radiology and cardiology imaging industry for the exchange and management of images and image related information. DICOM is also used in other image related medical fields, such as pathology, endoscopy, dentistry, ophthalmology and dermatology.
This book endeavors to explain the principles behind DICOM SR, including how to create, encode and render structured reports. It includes basic material to help understand the DICOM standard itself, since Structured Reporting will be of relevance to many who are not already familiar with DICOM. Extensive examples of potential applications are provided, together with details of their encoding, to augment the somewhat sterile and concise descriptions in the standard itself.
