The following is a writeup of Task4. Yumetech in conjunction with awardee of Task 4 will determine the methods and algorithms required to use DICOM data in an implementation of the VRC. This description will not be limited to a particular programming language. Instead, it will provide guidance to programmers on how they can use this type of data in their own X3D-based applications. Yumetech will also attend relevant DICOM Working Group meetings to promote the adoption of the X3D standard into the DICOM specification DICOM Overiew Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) is a standard for handling, storing, printing, and transmitting information in medical imaging. It includes a file format definition and a network communications protocol. The communication protocol is an application protocol that uses TCP/IP to communicate between systems. DICOM files can be exchanged between two entities that are capable of receiving image and patient data in DICOM format. The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) holds the copyright to this standard . It was developed by the DICOM Standards Committee, whose members  are also partly members of NEMA
