Open 87 File

The file extension identified with the number 87 is a type of file that can support various format options, ranging from multi-volume zip files to standard images for medical use.

These formats are described below:

Multi-volume ZIP file

In this section, the 87 file extension is used as a multi-split ZIP file, when the original file to be compressed is very large or the number of files is also very large.

It is convenient to use a multi-volume zip file, such as the 87 file, especially to host it on a website for download purposes.

In other words, the 87 file extension means that it is the 87th part of an ordered set of at least 87 parts.

Since the file is an integral part of a complete set, it should not be opened manually, separately.


In this section, files with extension 87 are a standard image format for mainly medical-dental use.

What is DICOM?

DICOM stands for Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine, which defines medical image formats that can be exchanged with the data and quality necessary for clinical use.

DICOM is effectively implemented in almost all radiology, cardiology imaging, and radiation therapy devices, and increasingly in devices in other medical domains such as ophthalmology and dentistry.

Since DICOM is a standard, each manufacturer defines their own requirements based on that standard.

An example of medical imaging equipment that can use the DICOM standard are Tomographs, Magnetic Resonators, Electroencephalographs and equipment from other specific medical areas, such as dentistry.
