To develop DICOM standards for interchange media.
- Continue to evaluate new media types that are potentially suitable as they become available, esp. new compression.
- Address workflow issues related to media creation.
- Address workflow issues related to media importation to the PACS (in conjunction with IHE).
- Address any issues arising out of the use of IHE Portable Data for Imaging (PDI) profile.
- Address any issues arising out of the use of IHE Import Reconciliation Workflow (IRW) profile.
Current Work Items
- Physical media is growing obsolete and being replaced by network-based alternatives (but not as fast as expected).
- Continuing though diminished problem of CD readability (compliance) issues and/or viewer executability or sufficiency issues (occasional complaints are still received).
Challenges and Opportunities
- Leverage the popularity of consumer media formats.
- Avoid proliferation of excessive numbers of alternative media and profiles.
- Optimize media related workflow.
- Promote the retirement of media in favor of network-based alternatives.
Relationships to Other Standards
- An “informal” liaison with OSTA exists to harmonize efforts with respect to UDF, MOD and DVD, though no interaction has taken place with this group since UDF 2.0 was standardized.
