Comprehensive DICOM Certification

Register

As an integral part of the lecture, participants will have a portable PC, connect it to a DICOM network, and use a variety of tools to analyze network transactions and DICOM messages. A DICOM validation tool developed exclusively for OTech is given to each participant to use during the workshop and also available on a CD to bring home for applications in a clinical environment.

Detailed Learning Objectives

You will get a basic understanding of the DICOM standard and go through a workshop that provides practical experience in analyzing and debugging DICOM connections and messages. The architecture, communication protocol, and DICOM services such as Store, Print, and the interaction of a device with an information system and/or archive will be explained. A DICOM message showing the "header" information will be shown so that participants can interpret these in the future for troubleshooting and/or implementation purposes. Additional important DICOM features including security, compression and image quality will be covered as well. DICOM conformance statements will be used extensively as examples. This course will prepare you also to become DICOM certified which requires you to take an on-line exam which is proctored and managed by PARCA, see link.
