  • What is WADO?The WADO standard specifies a Web-based service for accessing and presenting DICOM persistent objects, such as images and medical imaging reports. WADO is intended for distribution of results and images to healthcare professionals. It provides a simple mechanism for accessing a DICOM persistent object from HTML pages or XML documents, through HTTP/HTTPS, using DICOM UIDs. Data can be retrieved either in a presentation-ready form as specified by the requestor (e.g., JPEG or GIF) or in a native DICOM format.
