Training DICOM Fundamentals and DVTk applied

A combination of theoretical knowledge and practical experience

The two-day training ‘DICOM Fundamentals and DVTk applied’ combines theoretical knowledge, practical training and in-depth application. On the first day, the focus is on acquiring the necessary knowledge, whereby theory is illustrated with specific practical examples. The second day is devoted to workshops in which theory and practice are integrated with each other. You also learn to work with open source DVTk tools. Experience has shown us that putting your theoretical knowledge into practice as soon as possible is the most effective way of obtaining a clear insight into how the DICOM standard works and its purpose and application.
