Fifteenth DCMTK snapshot version 3.6.1

Today, a new development snapshot of the DCMTK has been made available. This is the fifteenth snapshot after the official release of version 3.6.0. As always, we have updated the code for the latest changes to the DICOM standard. In other words, the data dictionary as well as the list of SOP Class and Transfer Syntax UIDs is up-to-date, i.e. based on the definitions of the current edition of the standard text (DICOM 2015c) plus all recently approved Supplements and Correction Items (CP).

These are the main changes of this snapshot:

  • Further enhanced DICOM Structured Reporting (SR) module “dcmsr“:
    • Added support for the SR Template TID 1500 (Measurement Report) and
      included subordinated Templates (e.g. TID 1204, 1001, 1600, 1411).
    • Also added support for all required Context Groups and Code definitions.
    • Added support for the new Acquisition Context SR IOD (Supplement 187).
    • Implemented support for recently approved DICOM Correct Items (CP) that are related to the implemented parts of the standard, i.e. mainly to Part 16 (DCMR)
    • Many further enhancements making it easier to create and iterate SR documents.
  • Added missing support for new Value Representation (VR) “Other Long” (OL).
  • Added support for new Directory Record Type “TRAC” for Tractography Results.
  • Added support for new MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 Media Storage Application Profiles.
  • Updated automatically generated classes of the DICOM Radiotherapy (RT)
    module “dcmrt” based on the current edition of the standard (DICOM 2015c).

As usual, we have also fixed a number of issues that were detected after the publication of the previous version. All details on what has changed can be found in the corresponding CHANGES file. If you are interested in the differences on a source code level, please check the web interface of our public git repository.

As I already wrote for the last snapshots: Most of the enhancements that I did in the last couple of months on the DICOM SR implementation are supported in part by the QIICR project.
