Laurel Bridge developer solutions enable you to focus on domain-specific design. Rely on the powerful DICOM Connectivity Framework (DCF) Developer Toolkit to handle the ins and outs of working with DICOM and its close cousin DICONDE. Build and deploy robust, reliable and easy-to-use DICOM, DICONDE, DICOS, veterinary medicine and other specialized imaging applications.

Discover how the DCF Developer Toolkit from Laurel Bridge Software can support your domain-specific development needs.

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)

Non-Destructive Testing, or NDT, is a wide group of analysis techniques used in science and industry to evaluate the properties of a material, component or system without causing damage. NDT is commonly used in forensic engineering, mechanical engineering, petroleum engineering, electrical engineering, civil engineering, systems engineering, aeronautical engineering, medicine, and art.

Digital Imaging and Communication in Nondestructive Evaluation, or DICONDE, is a standard that enables nondestructive evaluation (NDE) manufacturers and users to electronically share, store and manage digital image data. It is based on the DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) standard that has had a dramatic impact on digital image management in healthcare. The use of DICONDE is desirable and becoming more prevalent in the NDT industry as the industry embraces the benefits of digital imaging.

The DCF Developers Toolkit, from Laurel Bridge is ideally suited for NDE manufacturers and uses to DICONDE enable their imaging systems. Supporting multiple languages on multiple platforms, the DCF Developers Toolkit provides an easily customized framework for DICONDE implementers and integrators. The DCF Developers Toolkit provides all the network and file level support that is needed for a complete, fully-compliant DICONDE implementation.

Digital Mammography

As the use of digital imaging for medical applications has become more widespread, and the use of physical film has reduces, the impact of DICOM is being seen in an increasing number of domains. Digital Mammography is an area that has seen dramatic developments in technology and use. The Laurel Bridge DICOM Connectivity Framework (DCF) enables the quick design and development of DICOM-enabled applications in the digital mammography domain. If your company is considering which SDKs and tools are right for your digital mammography development efforts, the DCF Toolkit may be just what the doctor ordered.


Digital Imaging and Communications in Security, or DICOS, is a standard that maintains an extensible, interoperable data format that enables the integration of security screening technologies across multiple vendor platforms and facilitates wider participation in the development of improved security screening technologies and systems specified in its predecessor. DICOS relies on elements of Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM), which is used in virtually all hospitals worldwide. This reliance on DICOM means that the Laurel Bridge DICOM Connectivity Framework (DCF) is the ideal solution for rapid design, development and deployment of DICOS applications.


As adoption of digital imaging becomes more widespread in the Veterinary discipline, DICOM is becoming the accepted standard, improving the management and exchange of veterinary imaging. DICOM continues to be adopted in a variety of medical disciplines outside of diagnostic imaging, including veterinary imaging, with increasing support more available for non-imaging data such as electrocardiograms, hemodynamic and audio waveforms, and procedure logs. The Dicom Connectivity Framework (DCF) supports the DICOM standard and enables developers of veterinary digital imaging systems to focus on domain-specific needs while relying on the DCF to support the underlying DICOM details.


Dental applications of digital imaging are spreading, with increased use seen for evaluation of dental caries, oral pathology, and pre-surgical and pre-orthodontic treatment assessment. As the dental world transitions from physical film to digital imaging technologies, the need for medical imaging applications that support DICOM, the accepted standard for handling, storing, printing, and transmitting medical imaging data, is growing. If your company is working in dental digital imaging space, consider leveraging the power and flexibility of the DICOM Connectivity Framework from Laurel Bridge Software. The DCF can speed design and development time and provide robust handing of DICOM, allowing your team to focus on the details of your domain.
