|Commissioned by NEMA, the production of the CD has been coordinated by Kuratorium OFFIS e.V., a non-profit R&D institute located in Oldenburg, Germany. OFFIS tested the images, built the required medical directory (DICOMDIR) and created a CD-R according to the specifications of DICOM Supplement 19: General Purpose CD-R Image Interchange Profile. The CD-R was used as the master for CD-ROM pressing.|
