image/g3faxG3Fax ImageThis is recommended only for fax applications.
image/gifGIF ImageGIF is a popular format that is universally well supported. However GIF is patent encumbered and should therefore be used with caution.
image/jpegJPEG ImageThis format is required for high compression of high color photographs. It is a "lossy" compression, but the difference to lossless compression is almost unnoticeable to the human vision.
image/pngPNG ImagePortable Network Graphics (PNG) \[http://www.cdrom.com/pub/png\] is a widely supported lossless image compression standard with open source code available.
image/tiffTIFF ImageAlthough TIFF (Tag Image File Format) is an international standard it has many interoperability problems in practice. Too many different versions that are not handled by all software alike.

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

Level A few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. In this scheme, some codes are under other codes, and imply that the code they are under also applies
Source The source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
Code The code (used as the code in the resource instance)
Display The display (used in the display element of a Coding). If there is no display, implementers should not simply display the code, but map the concept into their application
Definition An explanation of the meaning of the concept
Comments Additional notes about how to use the code
