The DICOM standard is an important part of the digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) initiative, which was launched in 1985 to improve the interoperability of medical imaging devices and information systems. The DICOM standard enables the exchange of images and other digital data between devices from different manufacturers and between disparate healthcare organizations.
The healthcare industry has widely adopted the DICOM standard, and most medical imaging devices and information systems now support DICOM. However, there are still some gaps in interoperability, particularly when it comes to the migration of DICOM data.
Benefits of Migrating Healthcare DICOM Data
Migration of healthcare DICOM data can be a challenging task, due to the complex nature of the DICOM standard and the different ways in which manufacturers implement it.
However, there are a number of benefits that can be gained by migrating DICOM data to a new system.
- One of the major benefits of migrating DICOM data is that it can help to improve the interoperability of medical devices and information systems. By migrating DICOM data to a new system, you can ensure that all of your devices and systems are using the same version of the DICOM standard, which can make it easier to exchange data between them.
- Another benefit of migrating DICOM data is that it can help to improve the security of medical images and data. When DICOM data is migrated to a new system, the security features of the new system can be used to protect the data.
- Finally, migrating DICOM data can also help to improve the efficiency of the healthcare organization. By migrating DICOM data to a new system, you can eliminate the need for manual processes, such as converting images to DICOM format. This can save the healthcare organization time and money.

The Cloud Healthcare API supports a wide range of DICOM features, including:
Pixel Data Storage and Retrieval
The Cloud Healthcare API can store and retrieve DICOM pixel data, which is the raw image data. Pixel data can be stored in either JPEG or PNG format.
DICOM Structured Reports
The Cloud Healthcare API can store and retrieve DICOM structured reports, which are text documents that describe the findings of a medical study. Structured reports can be generated by any modality, such as X-ray, MRI, or Ultrasound.
DICOM Presentation States
The Cloud Healthcare API can store and retrieve DICOM presentation states, which are XML documents that describe how DICOM images should be displayed. Presentation states can be used to create custom image viewers or to standardize the way images are displayed across different modalities.
DICOM Key Object Selection Documents
The Cloud Healthcare API can store and retrieve DICOM key object selection documents, which are XML documents that describe a subset of DICOM images that are relevant to a particular clinical finding. Key object selection documents can be used to create teaching files or select a radiologist’s set of images for review.
The Cloud Healthcare API is a powerful tool for managing DICOM stores in your healthcare organization. With just a few clicks, you can create new stores, upload images, and other data, and keep track of everything in one place. Give it a try today!
