Leadtools.Dicom.Scu Introduction (PACS)


The Leadtools.Dicom.Scu assembly provides classes that allow you to quickly add the common DICOM messaging interface used in PACS-enabled image viewer workstations to your DICOM Image Viewer application. Now you can have an Image Display actor query a PACS or Image Archive for a study, series and image instances of a patient for retrieval. In addition, you can create an easy-to-use interface for an Image Viewer AE to store images, waveforms, reports, etc., to PACS. For more information about the LEADTOOLS DICOM Scu .NET Class Library, refer to Programming With LEADTOOLS DICOM Scu.

The PACSFramework 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.
