(Everyone with an interest in this topic is welcome)


Several major projects in the NA-MIC community involve DICOM interoperability. Many Slicer users also have experience with clinical workstations and PACS systems and expect Slicer to provide a user interface consistent with commercial products. While major progress has been made on this topic in the past several years, this breakout session is dedicated to identifying and prioritizing outstanding issues.
