The Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Validation Toolkit (DVTk) is an open-source framework with potential value for anyone working with the DICOM standard. DICOM's flexibility requires hands-on experience in understanding ways in which the standard's interpretation may vary among vendors. DVTk was developed as a clinical engineering tool to aid and accelerate DICOM integration at clinical sites. DVTk is used to provide an independent measurement of the accuracy of a product's DICOM interface, according to both the DICOM standard and the product's conformance statement. DVTk has stand-alone tools and a framework with which developers can create new tools. We provide an overview of the architecture of the toolkit, sample scenarios of its utility, and evidence of its relative ease of use. Our goal is to encourage involvement in this open-source project and attract developers to build off and further enrich this platform for DICOM integration testing.
