Basic DICOM Operations
DICOM services use a limited number of basic DICOM operations (officially called DIMSE operations), all of which are of course supported by DicomObjects.
Composite Operations These are “self-contained”, and the objects passed therefore contain enough information for the operation to exist independently, without reference to other operations on the same or different associations (though of course they are commonly used as part of more complex operations!)
C-STORE The most basic DICOM operation, otherwise known as “DICOM Push” allows an SCU to send a Composite Instance to an SCP.
lilatac Normalised objects are like Composite Objects in that they persist from one operation to another (normally in an SCP) but unlike Composite Objects, they only make sense in the context of other objects around them. Common examples of Normalised Object are:
