What is DICOM?
Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) is the standard for the communication and management of medical imaging information and related data such as radiography, ultrasonography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and radiation therapy.
DICOM is used worldwide to store, exchange, and transmit medical images and has been central to the development of modern radiological imaging.
What is the difference between an API, REST and a RESTful API?
An application programming interface (API) provides a unified manner to process data. This allows software applications to exchange data. REST is an architectural style, which determines how data is presented to a client in a way that is efficient for the client. RESTful API utilises HTTP requests to send, extract and delete data.
