AAPM, in conjunction with the Advanced Technology Consortium, is initiating a new activity at this year’s annual meeting. The DICOM Connect-a-thon will allow technical exhibitors to show compliance with the RT Extensions to DICOM. For 2005, this compliance will be demonstrated by their ability to export cases from their systems to the ATC QA Centers (ITC, St. Louis or RCET, Gainesville, FL).

Datasets, supplied by the ATC, have already been distributed using the DICOM Working Group 7 mailing list. Once each exhibitor has developed a treatment plan using these datasets, they can be tested by returning them to the ATC via their normal planning system export capabilities. Along with the datasets, manufacturers should submit a copy of their DICOM conformance statements.

The datasets and DICOM Conformance statements will be evaluated by the ATC and AAPM. In addition, a DICOM central test node will be available during the AAPM Annual Meeting to allow exhibitors to demonstrate compliance. Information on the results of the Connect-a-thon will be available at the ATC booth during the meeting. Exhibitors may also arrange with the AAPM and the ATC staff to demonstrate their compliance with the ATC, or to discuss their DICOM conformance statements.
