Scope

To develop and maintain the CT-specific objects for the DICOM standard in the domains of nD X-Ray imaging, technical reports, dose information and clinical information, which accompany a patient general X-ray procedure. These include (but are not limited to) acquisition, processing, storage, communication, display and reporting. The CT group pursues opportunities for further enhancements in the area of clinical interoperability for CT.

Roadmap

  • The WG-21 roadmap follows a long-term strategy to specify information objects and possibly services to digitize and integrate the data flow within a CT oriented Radiography and Angiography environment.

Short Term Goals

  • Identify opportunities to cooperate with Working Group 11 (nD Presentation State).

Current Status

  • CT Dose Report has got a few change proposals, ongoing work (CP 1047 Dose Check support in DICOM CT Radiation Dose Report)

Current Work Items
