Medical Imaging Working Group activities

Below is a list of work items that the Group has decided to focus on.

Calibration slide for histopathology
Project coordinator: Craig Revie

  • Develop a calibration system for digital microscopes

DICOM camera raw support and EXIF tags
Project coordinator: David Clunie

  • Extend DICOM to provide support for Camera RAW image format and to include metadata from EXIF tags to provide the data needed to derive the colorimetry of a scene

Medical RGB Color Space - mRGB
Project coordinator: Michael Flynn

  • Define a set of colour spaces and ICC profiles for medical displays using the GSDF as the greyscale

Framework for multispectral imaging
Project coordinator: Masahiro Yamaguchi

  • Define a multispectral imaging framework

Open source reference implementation
Project coordinator: David Clunie

  • Connect the ICC's open source 'Sample ICC' or similar CMM with a suitable open source DICOM viewer to serve as a baseline implementation

Colour support for mobile devices
Project coordinator: Andy Masia

  • Develop guidelines for colour support on mobile devices

Best practice papers for colour in DICOM
Project coordinators: David Clunie Craig Revie

  • Develop guidelines for each imaging modality and where possible a set of tests that can be used to check conformance

Petri plate calibration
Project coordinator: Jeremie Pescatore

  • Develop a proposal for assessing Petri plate readers and display management

Color connectathon
Project coordinator: TBD

  • Extend existing medical imaging connectathons to include colour capability

Wiki for test images
Project coordinator: TBD

  • Define a set of reference images for all modalities, and a wiki to make test images available
