1. Proposed Workitem: Importing DICOM Structure sets for Dicubitus CT scans

2. The Problem

This specification needs to be made vendor neutral.

DOT Decimal offers an custom electron bolus compensator which requires DICOM structures to be send from the treatment planning system to DOT Decimal software. The custom bolus object is then virtually created and stored as a DICOM structure. The new structures (original plus bolus) are then sent back to the treatment planning system for calculation. Currently for patients scanned in the dicubitus position (frequently the case for breast boost setup for electron field) Philips Pinnacle (8.0m) is unable to import DICOM objects.

3. Key Use Case

<Describe a short use case scenario from the user perspective. The use case should demonstrate the integration/workflow problem.>

<Feel free to add a second use case scenario demonstrating how it “should” work. Try to indicate the people/systems, the tasks they are doing, the information they need, and hopefully where the information should come from.>


4. Standards & Systems

<List existing systems that are/could be involved in the problem/solution.>

<If known, list standards which might be relevant to the solution>


5. Discussion

<Include additional discussion or consider a few details which might be useful for the detailed proposal>

<Why IHE would be a good venue to solve the problem and what you think IHE should do to solve it.>
<What might the IHE technical approach be? Existing Actors? New Transactions? Additional Profiles?>
<What are some of the risks or open issues to be addressed?>


<This is the brief proposal. Try to keep it to 1 or at most 2 pages>
