General information

CEN/TC 251 Health informatics

Pre Standard


In the fields of medical image interchange, appropriate testing of all related standards implementations is necessary to ensure conformance to the standardized functions and thus multivendor connectability of equipment. The conformance test service should be available for the following standards in medical image interchange: - formats; - application protocols; - functional profiles; - formats on optical disks. It is not sufficient that manufacturers carry out conformance testing of their own equipment, conformance testing has to be done by independent conformance test centres.
