DICOM standard in its current state does not support Laser Doppler Imaging (LDI) modality. Based on experience in producing LDI devices at Aïmago SA we present requirements for the modality support in DICOM. This paper can be interesting to people who are responsible to maintain DICOM standard up to date with modern medical imaging techniques. The paper could also be of interest to manufacturers of LDI devices who would like to produce DICOM conformant LDI equipment.
