For modalities that cannot be made “DICOM ready,” with a software upgrade, the RFP should request the vendor to propose a solution to interface to the modality. The RFP should request that the vendor describe the architecture used for image acquisition and to describe the upgrade path for adding additional modalities, for example, if additional acquisition hardware is required. The vendor should be asked to describe the mechanism by which validation of image data against RIS data occurs for modalities that do not have DICOM modality worklist functionality.
This section is intended to both provide information to the vendor and to solicit general responses from the vendor that describe features that might not easily be described in a technical speciﬁcation.
