The DICOM Basics – Fourth Edition focuses on demystifying the complex language of Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM). The book’s primary aim is to bridge the gap in understanding between equipment providers with DICOM functionality and the user community. It breaks down the components of this communication standard and helps readers comprehend its impact on institutional operations, making it essential for individuals involved in implementing Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) in various healthcare settings.

The fourth edition builds upon reader feedback and incorporates the latest updates to the DICOM standard, including those from 2004 and the spring of 2005. With 50 additional pages of content, it provides in-depth coverage of topics like Structured Report extensions, clinical trial enhancements, color consistency, web-based access to DICOM objects, and configuration management.

Written by Herman Oosterwijk, MSc, MBA, a long-standing contributor to DICOM standardization since its inception in 1983, this book draws on his extensive experience in training individuals worldwide on DICOM. It serves as a valuable reference for those seeking a fundamental understanding of the DICOM standard.
