(DICOM stands for Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine.) There is both a file format definition and a network communica- tions protocol. The communications protocol communicates between systems so that DICOM files can be exchanged between two applications that can receive image and patient data in the DICOM format. DICOM was initially created by radiologists for CT and MRI scanner images. The Hokanson DICOM Extension facilitates the sharing of physiological peripheral vascular data including waveforms with another system or ap- plication that is also DICOM compatible. Hospitals and large vascular labs use PACS to manage all of their images whether ultrasound, x-ray, CT, MRI, etc. This extension shares the patient data obtained during the physiological testing with the patient's medical record or ultrasound record. Patient data that is entered into the DICOM Worklist Server is also shared with the CVS4 and is parsed and displayed in the correct fields. This eliminates the hassle of duplication of data entry with the subsequent possibility of error. ■ Provides connectivity to DICOM system (PACS) ■ Eliminates duplicate entry of patient data ■ Creates one record with all pertinent data ■ Playback Spectral Doppler waveform with audio ■ Ability to view at any networked DICOM workstation

Since the data is stored, multiple visit information is easily available to...
