Super resolution optical microscopy allows the capture of images with a higher resolution than the diffraction limit. However, due to the lack of a standard format, the processing, visualization, transfer, and exchange of Super Resolution Optical Microscope (SROM) images are inconvenient. In this work, we present an approach to standardize the SROM images based on the Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine (DICOM) standard. The SROM images and associated information are encapsulated and converted to DICOM images based on the Visible Light Microscopic Image Information Object Definition of DICOM. The new generated SROM images in DICOM format can be displayed, processed, transferred, and exchanged by using most medical image processing tools.
