 DICOM

 

 

The Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard was created by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA). Its aim is to support the distribution and viewing of medical images from CT, MRI and other medical modalities. The DICOM format is an extension of the older NEMA standard.
A DICOM file contains a header and the image data. The header stores information about the patient's name, the type of scan, position and dimension of image and lots of other data. The image data part contains all the image information.
The ANALYZE format stores the haeder (*.hdr) and the image data (*.img) in separate files. The DICOM image data can be compressed - in contrast to ANALYZE data - either lossless or lossy in order to reduce disk space.
DICOM is the common standard for scans from hospitals.
