DICOM = Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine.
DICOM is an image format, like JPEG or TIFF. It is the standard image format for medical images.
DICOM images contain important information
that medical image viewers need to properly display and manipulate the image. Other image formats
like JPEG or TIFF do not contain this important information, and are therefore unsuitable for
medical image viewers.
