Please consider participating in DICOM activities.  DICOM is an open community of stakeholders.  There are many ways to contribute and to use DICOM.

Review the Activities of the Working Groups

The Scope, Plans and Minutes of recent meetings for each DICOM Working Group are available for review.

Implement DICOM in a Product

There is no license fee to implement and use the DICOM Standard in a product, either commercial or non-commercial. The entire standard is available for download in multiple formats.

Join a Mailing List

DICOM has e-mail lists for each of the Working Groups and for the DICOM Community at Large. Interested stakeholders may join any of these e-mail lists at no cost by completing the contact form or by e-mailing your contact information to the DICOM Secretariat:

Email the DICOM Secretariat to be removed from one or more e-mail lists.

Submit Comments on a Supplement

DICOM invites any potential stakeholder to submit comments on Supplements.

Join a Working Group

Stakeholders may join the roster of a Working Group as an “Observer”.  Observers are permitted to attend Working Group meetings and telephone conferences and will be placed on the WG e-mail list, but are not permitted to vote in the Working Group.

Join the DICOM Standards Committee

Stakeholders may also join the DICOM Standards Committee as a voting member.  Voting members of the DSC may nominate voting representatives to any DICOM Working Group by notifying the Secretariat for that Working Group.

For an application form and details on Annual Dues, please contact the DICOM Secretariat:

Applications are reviewed by the DICOM Standards Committee at each DSC Meeting.
