The Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine (DICOM) standard group, managed by the
NEMA Medical Imaging and Technology Alliance (MITA), has a long history during which
AAPM members have contributed to the development of imaging systems standards. Highlights
of notable past efforts will be reviewed and currently active efforts summarized. In comparison,
Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) International has a large number of member
organizations, including AAPM, who work together to improve the interoperability of healthcare
information systems. Imaging systems have represented a major focus of IHE efforts to date.
Opportunities for Medical Physicists to contribute to currently active IHE efforts will be
reviewed.
Learning Objectives: 1. Understand how Medical Physicists have made important contributions
to the current DICOM standard, 2. Learn of new DICOM efforts that will significantly impact
imaging systems operations , and 3. Become aware of opportunities to contribute to IHE Imaging
integration efforts.
