Abstract
The DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) standard revision 3.0 defines a `print management service class' which allows a DICOM application to print medical images by accessing a remote `service class provider' (another DICOM application) which controls a printing device. This contribution describes a prototype implementation of the DICOM print management service, consisting of a `service class user' application which constitutes the user interface and a `service class provider' application which creates output on a PostScript device. The peer application communicate over a TCP/IP network using the `DICOM upper layer for TCP/IP' service. Possible fields of application for the prototype are discussed.
