The standard for digital imaging and communication in medicine (DICOM[1]) is very flexible. Most retailers use this advantage in order to define their own structures which will be adapted to the offered equipment by those retailers. We develop a mechanism in order to prevent private structures. The application removes every private or retired structure from a DICOM file in order to make it readable for most of the offered viewers, so that every hospital and institute is capable to construct their own imaging and communication system by using software and equipment of different retailers instead of only one.
