DICOM structured reporting and cancer clinical trials results.

Clunie DA - Cancer Inform (2007)

Bottom Line: DICOM is the ubiquitous standard for the interchange of images for both clinical use as well as research.It also has capabilities for the exchange of image-related information, including categorical and quantitative information derived from images.The use of DICOM Structured Reporting for the encoding and interchange of clinical trial results in a standard manner is reviewed.

ABSTRACT
The use of biomarkers derived from radiological images as surrogate end-points in therapeutic cancer clinical trials is well established. DICOM is the ubiquitous standard for the interchange of images for both clinical use as well as research. It also has capabilities for the exchange of image-related information, including categorical and quantitative information derived from images. The use of DICOM Structured Reporting for the encoding and interchange of clinical trial results in a standard manner is reviewed.

Mentions: Findings on digital mammograms include micro-calcifications, masses and architectural distortion that may have morphological characteristics indicative of malignancy as opposed to benignity. The machine interpretation task also may take into account change over time, an important factor in assessment of malignancy; though this is currently beyond the state of the art of CAD devices and is usually performed by a human, the DICOM SR template allows for the encoding of this information. Figure 1 illustrates several findings on a single view of a digital mammogram, and the tree structure that is encoded in the corresponding DICOM SR.
