Leadtools.Medical.Workstation Introduction (PACS)


The Leadtools.Medical.Workstation assembly provides the classes, methods, properties, enumerations and events to implement all of the user interface controls (the Viewer control, the Search control, the Configuration control, etc.) necessary to create a medical workstation viewer.

The PACS Server Framework is a framework for easily creating DICOM-based servers. The framework consists of a Windows Service (Leadtools.Dicom.Service.exe) that implements a user-defined DICOM service. The Windows Service provides the following features:

  • Handles DICOM connections
  • Handles DICOM association negotiation
  • Supports DICOM Message AddIns that allow user-supplied AddIns to respond to DICOM  messages.

This framework allows the developer to quickly develop scalable full featured PACS (i.e. Windows Service, Association and secure communications, debug and audit log).  It also allows the developer to organize DICOM services into different processes (i.e. LAN vs. WAN, secure vs. unsecure, HIS/RIS vs. PACS Archive).

The PACS Framework exposes specific interfaces that allow AddIns to implement additional functionality for the server.  With AddIns you can:

  • Specify supported presentation contexts
  • Respond to specific DICOM messages
  • Spy on DICOM communication without affecting the message
  • Handle multiple DICOM messages with one AddIn.

The LEADTOOLS Medical Workstation Viewer is an end-user like application with functionality comparable to many DICOM viewers used today in the health care industry.  It can be used without modification by medical professionals, device manufacturers (as a Modality Workstation viewer), research facilities, or anyone who needs to view DICOM images.  The source code is provided for easy customization and branding.  The workstation is built on LEADTOOLS PACS Framework components, and supports:

  • DICOM SCU Query/Retrieve, Store, Storage Commit
  • DICOM SCP service to provide Query/Retrieve and Store
  • DICOM Media import
  • Medical Image Viewing (display layouts, annotations, Zoom, Pan, Window-Level tools, etc)
  • User Access Control

 The user-interface can be easily customized.  There are C# and VB.Net examples that ship with the toolkit that show how this is done.
