Press Release: German Radiological Society certifies first products writing patient media at European Congress of Radiology, March 7, 2008

2008-02-13. At the upcoming European Congress of Radiology (ECR 2008, Vienna, March 7-11), the German Radiological Society (DRG) will for the first time grant certificates to manufacturers of products which create media containing patient information in accordance with recommendations issued by the DRG. These certificates are expected to guide German doctors in their search for a good way of burning a patient’s diagnostic images onto a CD. Because of the interest for other societies both in Europe and abroad, an English version of the system is in preparation. The full text of the press release can be found on the project's page (English) or at the "Informationsdienst Wissenschaft" (German language only).

Project Homepage now Bilingual

Since January 2008, the project homepage is bilingual: German-English.

Requirements Specification and Guidelines Available in English Language

Since January 2008, the DRG Requirements Specification for Exchange Media Containing Patient Information and the Guidelines for Handling Media Containing Patient Information are available in English language.

DRG certification for DICOM CDs now possible

Since April 2007, a registration for DRG certification is possible. Therewith, the first certified systems passing the validation procedure of the DRG could be available at the 89th German Congress of Radiology ("89. Deutscher Röntgenkongress") taking place in Berlin in the beginning of May 2008. Such certified products create DICOM CDs that are valid in the context of the DRG Requirements Specification for Media for patient CDs and, therefore, are also compliant with the DICOM standard. Details about the certification procedure can be found on this page.
