Leadtools.Medical.Workstation Introduction (PACS)

Summary

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

This 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 the LEADTOOLS PACS Framework, which 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. 

Key Features

PACS Framework Components

The PACS 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 medical workstation viewer is built on LEADTOOLS PACS Framework components, and supports:

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.

PACS Framework Features

The PACS 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:

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 add-ins you can:
