DVTk news update – April 2018

Dear All,

We are happy to inform you about about the DICOM 2018a Standard DVTk definition files, and well as on the release of a new version of the DICOM Editor.  Worth mentioning is also our presence at SIIM 2018 this year. Curious? Take a look at this news update.

DICOM 2018a Standard DVTk Definition file set

DVTk applications work by validating DICOM objects using a set of definition files that specify the different Information Object Definitions of the DICOM standard.

 

However, the definition files provided along with DVTk, have not had an update for over 7 years. A crowdfunding initiative was started last year in order to fund the update of the definition files. Unfortunately this did not result in any backers.

 

ICT Group therefore decided to invest time and effort updating the definition files and making them available for a small fee. A dedicated software developer was allocated for this meticulous job and the good news is: The updated DVTk definition files for the 2018a standard are now available!

 

Although ICT Group is asking a small contribution fee per company for the updated definition files, any revenue will be re-invested in the DVTk open source project. So, if you would like to use these latest definition files, then acquire them and support the DVTk project in the process!

DICOM Editor 5.0.2

This update of the DICOM editor now supports displaying/editing of private data elements correctly. Also as a bonus, new RT Physician Intent and RT Segment Annotation definition files will be installed automatically.
