       - DoroTech, DoroFile for GEMS Genesis WORM:

		DoroFile is a UNIX-like file system for WORM (Write Once Read
		Multiple) optical disks that features:


		- Full implementation of UNIX file management concepts.  - Use
		of autonomous and reliable storage media.  - Multi-user
		environment.


		DoroFile is a software system that enables the new generation of
		optical memory storage devices to be used in a UNIX or UNIX-like
		programming environment.  DOROFILE fully implements all UNIX
		file and directory concepts.  It allows a totally transparent
		use of WORM disk under SunOS, by providing integration of the
		WORM file system under VFS (virtual file system).  Optical
		volumes are shared by any workstation through NFS.


		- Language: C - Source Available: yes - Additional Requirements:
		SCSI boards, SCSI cable/optical drive - Platforms Supported:
		SPARC

		A commercial Photoshop plugin that works with the many other
		programs that support the plugin format.  Reads fixed format
		proprietary formats, and extra modules for ACR-NEMA 2.0, DICOM
		3.0, Interfile 3.3 files are available.  Particularly good at
		multi-slice images and color images, and clearly has a nuclear
		medicine bias to it.  Well documented.  Recommended.  Note of
		potential bias - I was a beta tester.

    7.3 Mailservers (see also DICOM Mailservers)

	- FAQ about email access to internet services:

		To find out more, fetch the relevant FAQ from the mailserver at
		"mail-server@rtfm.mit.edu" with a message body:

			send
			usenet/news.answers/internet-services/access-via-email

		Or ftp it from
		"ftp://rtfm.mit.edu/pub/news.answers/internet-services/access-via-email"

      - Ftpmail:


		Ftpmail is a service provided by some extremely generous sites
		that allow you to send ftp commands to them by email and the
		server executes the commands and sends the results back.  Very
		few sites offer this because of the huge load and potential for
		abuse.  I only mention it here because a lot of medical imaging
		people don't seem to have anonymous ftp access.

		To find out more, fetch the relevant FAQ from the mailserver at
		"mail-server@rtfm.mit.edu" with a message body:

			send usenet/news.answers/ftp-list/faq

		The most commonly used site is "ftpmail@decwrl.dec.com" (send
		"help" (no quotes) in the message body).
