File Extension

What's the correct file extension for DICOM files?

Many people are using "DCM" as extension for DICOM files, but in fact there should be NO extension for DICOM files, as required by the DICOM Standard (parts 10-12). Characters in files names must all be uppercase, numbers 0-9 can also be used in file names, and the maximum filename length is 8 characters.
