Those are extremely well know file format in the medical imaging
world. Next time you go get an MRI / CT, ask for your DICOM CD with
your images (in most countries, you do not get films anymore).
ACR-NEMA used to refer to the previous standard (before DICOM 1993).
And SPI is a proprietary format (used by Siemens/Philips) in pre 1993
