Conformance statement

A conformance statement is a detailed description, in a specific format (as defined in Part 2 of DICOM) of the DICOM-specific features of a particular product.

Amongst other things, it describes:

  • The SOP classes and transfer syntaxes supported
  • What "real-world" activity triggers or is triggered by what network operations
  • Character sets supported

etc.

Note that the requirement to relate to real-world activity makes it impossible to have a true DICOM conformance statement for a toolkit such as DicomObjects, and this is explained more fully on the DicomObjects_Conformance_Statement page.
