Medical imaging has changed the face of healthcare and is an essential tool that allows physicians to diagnose, treat, and prevent ailments or illnesses. If you've ever broken a bone, had a baby, or undergone cardiac stress testing, chances are you've experienced medical imaging technology like an x-ray, CT, MRI, or ultrasound as part of your healthcare experience, and most likely those images utilized DICOM.
For those in healthcare, DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) is a familiar term that defines the international standardized imaging format for medical images and related information ensuring they meet the quality necessary for clinical use. It is also one of the most widely deployed healthcare messaging standards in the world allowing the replacement of film with an entirely digital workflow.
Now more than ever, healthcare organizations and physicians are turning to the Box Content Cloud, and the benefits are clear:
