Service Class Roles

All DICOM network communications occur between an SCP and an SCU

In the vast majority of cases, the Association is initiated by the SCU with the SCP responding, but DICOM does allow Reverse Role Negotiation whereby the initiator can request to be regarded as the SCP. In practice, this is only used as part of the Storage Commitment service.
