  Description     : DICOMscope - DICOM Viewer

DICOMscope is a free DICOM viewer which can display uncompressed,
monochrome DICOM images from all modalities and which supports
monitor calibration according to DICOM part 14 as well as
presentation states. DICOMscope offers a print client (DICOM
Basic Grayscale Print Management) which also implements the
optional Presentation LUT SOP Class.

#### BEGIN questionable verbiage
                                     The development of this
prototype was commissioned by the "Committee for the Advancement
of DICOM" and demonstrated at the European Congress of Radiology
ECR 1999. An enhanced version was developed for the "DICOM
Display Consistency Demonstration" at RSNA InfoRAD 1999. The
current release 3.5.1 has been demonstrated at ECR 2001 and
contains numerous extensions, including a print server, support
for encrypted DICOM communication, digital signatures and
structured reporting.

DICOMscope is not meant as a competition for commercial DICOM
viewers. The application is rather a feasibility study for DICOM
presentation states. The program is not appropriate to be used in
a clinical environment, e.g. for reporting.

Does this really have to be in the long description, or should it be in the README.Debian?
