The LEADTOOLS Web Viewer Framework Module enables programmers to quickly build high-quality, full-featured, web-based medical image viewer applications.
It includes WCF components and services that enable you to implement high-level interfaces for distributing medical studies from a server to web clients, even with very limited knowledge of web hosting and web service development. This is ideal for web-based solutions like querying patient studies and viewing images from remote computers using Microsoft Internet Explorer.
The plug-in capable design also allows developers to use the framework for non-DICOM images or binary data transfer, and to extend an implemented web service to include application-specific data transfer and communication capabilities.
Web-hosted WCF Services provide/enable you to:
Addresses and Interfaces to manage, store, query and Retrieve DICOM data sets, image sets or thumbnails.
Upload single DICOM file or a set from DICOM media using DICOM DIR.
Query for patient, study and series.
Get DICOM tags only.
Get full DICOM files with all image information.
Get full resolution image or a thumbnail representation.
Perform Multi-threaded background image streaming to enhance performance.
Support Thin Client and Rich Client implementations.
Dynamically remove or add plug-in services as needed.
