DICOM Configuration Management

DICOM requires fixed IP addresses and configuring AE Titles at each individual device. Dynamic addressing as is used for most networks to date is not provided. Configuration management defines the use of external (non-DICOM) protocols to perform functions during configuration and operation of DICOM networks and network applications.

The profiles address the use cases for:

·           Automatic self-configuration on power up

·           Installation of new DICOM equipment

·           Network and device reconfiguration

·           Multiple device time synchronization

The configuration management tasks are performed by making explicit requirements that specific external protocols be used with specific selections of options and parameters. 

This profile utilizes Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to provide services to assign and manage IP parameters. The DHCP server is configured to establish the rules for assigning IP addresses to machines. The rules may be explicit assignments for each device or may be assignment of a block of IP addresses to be assigned dynamically as machines are attached and removed from the network. The devices serve as DHCP client and can obtain its IP address and a variety of related parameters such as Network Time Protocol (NTP) server address from the DHCP server during startup. The DHCP server may dynamically update the DNS server with new relationships between IP addresses and DNS host names.
