The Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) 3.0 Standard (parts 2-7, 9) was approved by ballot in October of 1993. Parts I and 8 of the DICOM Standard had been completed in 1992. The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) has sponsored work at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology to produce a Central Test Node implementation based on the 3.0 Standard. Central Test Nodes were used at the 1993 RSNA Annual Meeting to support demonstration of image transmission, storage, display and printing. HIS-PACS functionality was supported using normalized objects, event reports and database access. This software was designed to satisfy the requirements of the 1993 DICOM Demonstration and is not intended to provide a complete system. However, this software does provide an example implementation which can be used to gain understanding about the DICOM Standard and has successfully communicated with the 20 vendors who participated in the DICOM demonstration at the 1993 RSNA. This software is written in ANSI-C and has been compiled under the following operating systems: SunOS, Solaris, Ultrix, OSF/l, Irix, NextSTEP. This poster describes the implementation of the software, how the software can be used, and how the software can be obtained.
