Join us for a live demonstration of the DICOM association process. DICOM network entities require that each communicating node understands and can use the same DICOM configuration parameters in order to successfully exchange information.  

An overview of the OSI model is offered to show where in the stack DICOM operates for communication. This session includes other appropriate network and virtual machine background information in order to examine the network support structure for DICOM communication. The applications and tools used in the demo are also reviewed. This sets up the demonstration of the DICOM association process to show all the handshaking that must occur for successful DICOM communication.
