Hi Louise

Our belief is that as far as image quality is concerned, the image inside a DICOM is essentially the same as a JPEG.  

Without going into specifics, the DICOM format does hold additional data (metadata) compared to a JPEG, so you may wish to research it a bit further to see if this is something you might use when making your decision.
