7.5 Conformance of DICOM Media

DICOM does not define conformance of a piece of medium in a generic sense. DICOM conformance of a piece of medium can only be evaluated within the scope of one or more media storage Application Profiles which define specific contexts for interoperability.

Note: One may accept the statement “this is a DICOM CD-R” when pointing to a storage medium. However, one should not state “this CD-R is DICOM conformant”, but rather “this CD-R conforms to the Basic Cardiac X-ray Angiographic DICOM Application Profile”.
