DCM

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) created DCM files as the standard format for medical body scans. The initial standard was released in 1983 and revised severally in the 1990s and 2000s. The files are now the standard format for medical imaging and communications. DCM is a universally standardized file format for saving and viewing ultrasound images, CT scans, PET scans, MRIs, and related patient data. DCM also allows the processing, transmission, and printing of digital medical images, and doctors can share these images with other doctors through email and storage devices, among others. Which Programs can Open DCM Files? Windows users can use ezDICOM and MicroDicom viewer to open the DCM files. Web browsers also allow viewing of the scans through View My Scans. There’s a long list of programs that you can use to open and view DCMs, and these include the following (not an exhaustive list): OsiriX Imaging Software, Adobe Photoshop CC, ACD Systems Canvas, MRIcro, IrfanView, GIMP, MeVisLab and DicomWorks.
