 Internet Set Up/AAPMnet

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 derivative data.

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.

Please direct any questions to:
