DICOM Validation Toolkit: Enables testing that will increase interoperability between medical devices

Interoperability between medical devices is patient safety critical. Ensuring the communication between these devices behaves as expected, this will need thorough verification. When dealing with DICOM communication, the DVTk library and the DVTk based applications will help to accomplish this.

The DVTk library and DVTk based applications allow for an independent validation of the DICOM interface of a medical device. By using the DVTk tooling the users themselves are able to develop the DICOM interface of their product and resolve interoperability issues upfront. The first effort on this library started 20 years ago, when the first versions of the DICOM Standard became available. After 10 years, the DVTk project became Open Source. Philips Healthcare,  Agfa Healthcare and ICT Healthcare were active in this transition. Integral part of this transition was the introduction of the DVTk website, that enables and supports interaction between the DVTk users.
