This document is part of the DICOM standard and specifies the DICOM Message Service Element (DIMSE).

The DIMSE defines an Application Service Element (both the service and protocol) used by peer DICOM Application Entities for the purpose of exchanging medical images and related information. To do this, it relies on the DIMSE protocol, which defines the encoding rules necessary to construct Messages. A Message is composed of a Command Set (defined in this Part of the DICOM Standard) followed by a conditional Data Set (defined in PS3.5).

This document is one of 22 parts to the DICOM standard.

Main sections:

• Service context

• Service overview

• Protocol overview

• DIMSE-C

• DIMSE-N
