DICOM Connection Module

- DICOM Conformance Statement

1. INTRODUCTION This document is the DICOM 3.0 Conformance Statement for the DICOM Connection Module. The DICOM Connection Module is an interface component used for retrieving, storing and displaying diagnostic and medical images. The component conforms to the DICOM 3.0 standard to allow the sharing of medical information and images with other digital imaging systems that support DICOM as well.

2.2. Functional definitions of ME -

-

-

After a CPR subsystem requests to query the Worklist Service, the Worklist ME reads the Hospital Worklist information using the query parameters provided by the CPR subsystem and hands the results to the CPR subsystem. It can be configured if the ME should check using the Verification Service that the Hospital System is available only if starting the application or every time requesting the Worklist. Also the CPR application can manually initiate the Verification service. After a CPR subsystem requests to store images to the Hospital Storage the Storage ME sends images to the Hospital Storage using the Remote Storage Service. It can be configured: - If the ME should check using the Verification Service that the Hospital System is available only if starting the application or every time requesting the Storage Service. Also the user can manually initiate the Verification service. - If the ME should use Secondary Capture or Photographic Image SOP. - If the ME should store the image Uncompressed or JPEG Baseline compressed. After a CPR subsystem requests to query the Query Service, the Query ME queries the Hospital Query Service using the query parameters provided by the CPR subsystem and hands the results to the CPR subsystem. It can be configured: - If the ME should check using the Verification Service that the Hospital System is available only if starting the application or every time processing a query. Also the CPR application can manually initiate the Verification service. - If the ME should use Patient Root or Study Root SOP. After a CPR subsystem requests to retrieve images from the Hospital Storage the Retrieve ME downloads images from the Hospital Storage using the Storage Service. It can be configured: - If the ME should check using the Verification Service that the Hospital System is available only if starting the application or every time requesting the Storage Service. Also the user can manually initiate the Verification service. - If the ME should use Patient Root Move, Patient Root Get, Study Root Move or Study Root Get SOP. All ME’s acts as SCP for Verification in background.

2.3. Sequencing of Real World Activities -

-

ME‘s can be configured that every time the ME‘s has to contact the Hospital system they check first that the Hospital System is available using the Verification Service. In case of success the ME’s do their main functionality. If it is not configured this way there is no sequencing of Real World Activities.

Usage SCU/SCP SCU

3.1.1. Association Establishment Policies 3.1.1.1. General For the Verification SOP Class the Worklist ME initiates an Association when acting as a SCU, it accepts an Association when acting as a SCP. For the Modality Worklist Information Model Find SOP Class the Worklist ME initiates an Association to the Modality Worklist Provider. The PDU size can be specified in a configuration file - the default value is 16k (16,384 Byte), the minimum value is 4k (4,096 Byte), the maximum value is 1MB (1,048,576 Byte). 3.1.1.2. Number of Associations The ME will attempt only one association establishment at a time for each SOP Class. 3.1.1.3. Asynchronous Nature Asynchronous operation is not supported. 3.1.1.4. Implementation Identifying Information The ME provides a single Implementation Class UID which is "1.2.276.0.43.100.1" and an implementation version name of "ifa DCM-MWL 2.22"

3.1.2. Association Initiation Policy -

-

There are 2 real world activities that initiate an association for Verification SOP Class: - Manual request by the Operator - Automatic request at system start The ME initiates an association for Modality Worklist Information Model Find SOP Class each time the user requests the Modality Worklist.

3.1.2.1. Real World Activity Verify Availability of Destination 3.1.2.1.1. Associated Real-World Activity The associated Real-World Activity is the verification of the availability of the destination. The ME will attempt to use the DIMSE C-ECHO command to verify whether the receiving AE is able to negotiate an Association and respond.

3.3.1. Association Establishment Policies 3.3.1.1. General For the Verification SOP Class the Query ME initiates an Association when acting as a SCU, it accepts an Association when acting as a SCP. For the Patient Root Query Retrieve Find and Study Root Query Retrieve Find SOP Class the ME acting as a SCU initiates an Association to the Hospital Query Provider. The size can be specified in a configuration file - the default value is 16k (16,384 Byte), the minimum value is 4k (4,096 Byte), the maximum value is 1MB (1,048,576 Byte). 3.3.1.2. Number of Associations The ME will attempt only one association establishment at a time for each SOP Class. 3.3.1.3. Asynchronous Nature Asynchronous operation is not supported. 3.3.1.4. Implementation Identifying Information The ME provides a single Implementation Class UID which is "1.2.276.0.43.100.4" and an implementation version name of "ifa DCM-QR 2.22"

3.3.2. Association Initiation Policy -

-

There are 2 real world activities that initiate an association for Verification SOP Class: - Manual request by the Operator - Automatic request at system start The ME initiates an association as a SCU for Patient Root Query Retrieve Find or Study Root Query Retrieve Find SOP Class each time the user queries for patients, studies, series or images stored at the site DICOM server.

3.3.2.1. Real World Activity Verify Availability of Destination 3.3.2.1.1. Associated Real-World Activity The associated Real-World Activity is the verification of the availability of the destination. The ME will attempt to use the DIMSE C-ECHO command to verify whether the receiving AE is able to negotiate an Association and respond. 3.3.2.1.2. Proposed Presentation Contexts

In case of timeout (See Chapter 6.) the ME retries to establish an association automatically in background, displaying a dialog box with status information (number of retrievals done/to go before abort) and gives the user the possibility to cancel the procedure. 3.3.2.2.2.1.2. Error and Status handling In case of error or non-successful status the ME repeats the request automatically in background. If after a configurable number of failed trials the ME displays a dialog box with status information (number of retrievals done/to go before abort) and gives the user the possibility to cancel the procedure or to repeat it again. All necessary data will be cached in a queue handled by the ME. Only images that are not send successfully are part of the retransmission.

4. COMMUNICATION PROFILES 4.1. Supported Communication Stacks The TCP/IP stack is the only supported protocol.

4.1.1. TCP/IP Stack The ME‘s inherit the TCP/IP stack from the MS-WINDOWS system upon which they execute.

4.2. Physical Media Support The ME‘s are only software components (without any hardware parts)! Therefore they are indifferent to the physical medium over which TCP/IP executes; they can use all network adapters to which MS-WINDOWS can bind the TCP/IP protocol.

5. EXENTIONS/SPECIALIZATIONS/PRIVATIZATIONS Not applicable

6. CONFIGURATION The following parameters are configurable (in the manner described in the Product Installation Guide): - table of mapping of ME Title to Presentation Address (hostname and port number) - MWL ME title (default: ifa DCM-MWL) - Storage ME title (default: ifa DCM-STO) - Query ME title (default: ifa DCM-QR) - Retrieve ME title (default: ifa DCM-QR) - PDU size in kByte (1024 Byte) – min.: 4, default: 16, max.: 1024 - Timeout value in seconds – min.: 1, default: 10, max.: 120 - Number of retrials – min.: 0, default: 10, max.: 99

6.1. ME Title/Presentation Address Mapping -

The ME titles are configurable Node IP address, subnetmask, hostname, hostname aliases are configured by the local system administrator TCP/IP port is configurable.

7. SUPPORT OF EXTENDED CHARACTER SETS No extended character sets are supported. - 22 / 26 -
