Hello All, DICOM is seeking public comments for Supplement 225 - Multi-Fragment Video Transfer Syntax. Scope and Field of Application This supplement modifies existing video transfer syntaxes to remove the restriction that the video cannot be broken up into multiple fragments. The affected transfer syntaxes are: • MPEG2 Main Profile / Main Level Video Compression • MPEG2 Main Profile / High Level Video Compression • MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 High Profile / Level 4.1 Video Compression • MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 High Profile / Level 4.2 Video Compression Videos of size larger than 2^32-4 bytes have started to appear (e.g. procedure video recordings). Previously, those videos needed to be split into multiple DICOM instances. Instructions for accessing the documents and submitting comments: 1.

Hello all, There is a letter ballot for Proposed DICOM Supplement 160: Second Generation Radiotherapy – Patient Setup and Delivery Instruction Scope and Field of Application - This Supplement specifies two IODs to support workflow management and patient setup for Radiotherapy treatment delivery sessions. The IODs are designed as part of the Second Generation Radiotherapy object framework. - This Supplement introduces an RT Radiation Set Delivery Instruction IOD, which specifies the RT Radiations to be applied for treatment delivery, the order in which they are applied, and some other parameters related to the upcoming RT Treatment Session. - This Supplement introduces an RT Treatment Preparation IOD to specify setup devices, setup procedures and other items related to the setup of the patient prior to the delivery of therapeutic radiation. The First Generation RT Plan IOD contained a Patient Setup Module with a similar content. However, this content may change between the treatment sessions, while the majority of content of the RT Plan, defining the treatment parameters, remains the same. This caused unnecessary proliferation of RT Plan SOP Instances, and compromised fraction counting within a series of dosimetrically uniform treatments. Therefore, the Second Generation RT Radiation Set and RT Radiation IODs do not include such content, but use a separate IOD for this purpose. Information about this supplement can be accessed on the DICOM public server: Word Document format: ftp://medical.nema.org/medical/dicom/Supps/LB/sup160_lb_PatientSetup.docx PDF format: ftp://medical.nema.org/medical/dicom/Supps/LB/sup160_lb_PatientSetup.pdf PowerPoint Overview: ftp://medical.nema.org/medical/dicom/Supps/LB/sup160_lb_PatientSetup.pptx Please review the documentation and advise if you have any issues, comments, or feedback with respect to Supplement 160. The ballot closes August 18th and your feedback is important. Best regards, Joanie Harper
