8 September 1993 Representation of ACR-NEMA files using the ISO/IEC image interchange facility

The Image Interchange Facility (IIF) is being developed by an ISO/IEC joint technical committee as part of the Image Processing and Interchange (IPI) Standard. The IIF has been designed with the goal of enabling data transfer between many imaging application domains. This work concentrates on the definition of a profile of the IIF tailored to the interchange of medical imaging data and capable of representing all of the information contained in ACR- NEMA files. The motivation for this work is to provide a translation facility between ACR- NEMA and the IIF in order to create a link from medical imaging networks to general purpose imaging facilities which use the IIF. Three cases were encountered in the definition of the profile: First, where possible, the work defines a mapping between ACR-NEMA elements and corresponding IIF structures. Second, the definition of the IIF syntax was restricted to eliminate those parts with no corresponding ACR-NEMA structure. Third, other parts of the IIF syntax were extended to enable domain specific data to be encapsulated.
