A DICOM RELAY SERVICE SUPPORTED ON CLOUD RESOURCES

Luís A. Bastião Silva, Carlos Costa, José Luis Oliveira

Abstract

Over the past decades, healthcare institutions adopted Picture Archive and Communication Systems in their workflows. The exchange and interaction between different equipment is performed with Digital Imaging Communication in Medicine (DICOM), which is a very extensive protocol covering many areas of imaging laboratories. However, the communication of a wide domain composed by several medical institutions is not well supported. This paper presents a solution to share DICOM services across healthcare institutions. The proposed implementation is supported on public cloud resources, creating the opportunity to exchange information between medical devices across several institutions.
