On behalf of the AAPM Computer Committee, I invite your company
to participate in a DICOM RT demonstration on the Exhibit Floor
of the 2003 AAPM Annual Meeting and Exhibit.
The AAPM Computer Committee wants to promote greater use and
understanding of DICOM objects in radiation therapy.
Goal: The goal is to demonstrate the transfer of DICOM RT objects
between the various systems used in radiation therapy.
We are creating a small test set of treatment planning setups
covering the general scope of radiation oncology. At the meeting,
object sets based on these standard setups, and derivatives of
them, will be stored on a central server that will be provided
by Merge eFilm. The participating companies are expected to get
or receive these object sets, process them, and send derived results
to the central server for use by other companies. To prepare for
the meeting, the data (for example CT datasets) will be placed
on the NEMA ftp site for download, processing, and uploading of
Although it is not required for participation, companies are
strongly encouraged to demonstrate transfer of objects not included
in this “canned” data set.
A more detailed description of the demonstration can be found
in the Computer
Committee section of aapm.org.
Connection specifications and costs thereof: Participation in
the connectathon will require your booth to have a network connection.
The cost of this connection starts at $1100. In addition to DICOM
this connection will allow network communications with other vendors
and the internet, if desired. Please separately arrange this connection
through the San Diego Convention Center.
