10 Conformance

10.1 Conformance Requirements

10.1.1 Retired

10.1.2 TCP/IP NETWORK COMMUNICATION SUPPORT

An implementation claiming conformance to DICOM TCP/IP Network Communication Support shall:

a) Meet the DICOM Upper Layers Protocol requirements as defined in Section 9.

b) Use registered Application Context Names, Abstract Syntax Names and Transfer Syntax Names as defined for OSI Object Identifiers (ISO 8824 and ISO 9834-1).

Note: Annex F defines the DICOM Upper Layer Protocol encoding for the Application Context Names, Abstract Syntax Names, and Transfer Syntax Names. ISO 8825 defined encoding is not used.

c) Use one of the published and approved RFCs defining the operation of TCP/IP over specific physical networks.

10.2 Conformance Statement

An implementation claiming conformance to DICOM for communication support in a networked environment shall state DICOM V3.0 TCP/IP Network Communication Support with the list of physical networks and corresponding relevant implementation information. This implies that the conformance requirements defined in Section 10.1.2 are met.
