It facilitates the display of NDE signal and image data on different systems that conform to the DICONDE format. DICONDE assists with the archiving of NDE data and its subsequent retrieval and review. The DICONDE standard was developed by ASTM International and was based on a similar standard used within the medical industry. ASTM produces a number of guides and standards about DICONDE.
