Overview of LEADTOOLS DICOM Communication SDK Technology
- Complete support for Message Exchange, including DIMSE (DICOM Message Service Element) service users and providers, and Message Exchange Upper Layer Protocol
- Multiple clients and servers via asynchronous or synchronous TCP/IP connections
- High-level functions that initiate and terminate associations, thereby automating the filling of PDU structures (Protocol Data Units)
- Automatic and transparent conversion between specific transfer syntaxes required by the associated application entities
- High-level functions and components automate DICOM Request and Response command sets, greatly simplify the addition of DICOM communication to your application
- High-level DICOM Print library
- Secure data transmission with TLS and ISCL security profiles
- Designed to make it easy to keep encryption in your application up to date and change as the DICOM standard changes
- Use IPv4 and IPv6 addressing
- Low-level functions to customize network sockets
With the LEADTOOLS DICOM Communication SDK Technology, Developers Can:
- Open and initialize a DICOM network connection
- Create a DICOM Associate Connection to transfer data and messages
- Customize the DICOM Associate Connection for data and transfer types
- Retrieve information about the DICOM Associate Connection
- Retrieve information about the DICOM Network Connection
- Send and receive messages using either the high-level or low-level functions
Create consumers and providers for any DICOM service class, including:
- Any DICOM Message Service Element (DIMSE)
- Basic Worklist Management
- Media Storage
- Patient Management
- Print Management
- Queue Management
- Storage Commitment
- Storage Service
- Study Content Notification
- Study Management
- Results Management
Create DIMSE-C services associated with composite SOP classes:
- C Cancel Request/Response
- C Echo Request/Response
- C Find Request/Response
- C Get Request/Response
- C Move Request/Response
- C Store Request/Response
Create DIMSE-N services associated with normalized SOP Classes and provide an extended set of operations and notifications:
- N Action Request/Response
- N Create Request/Response
- N Delete Request/Response
- N Event Report Request/Response
- N Get Request/Response
- N Set Request/Response
AE's can serve in one of two roles:
- Invoke a DIMSE-service-user (SCU)
- Perform a DIMSE-service-user (SCP)

Demo Applications that Include DICOM Communication
A zero-footprint Medical viewer with light and dark themes to display DICOM images (pixel data) with window level, density removal, offset, scale, zoom, stack, annotation/markup, and multi-touch support for phone, tablet, and desktop.
It demonstrates zero-footprint 3D volume rendering of multiple volume types including VRT, MIP, MPR, and SSD in the Medical Web Viewer. The viewer does not require browser plugins, desktop utilities, or remote desktop clients and features low resolution and caching options for faster rendering and loading.
Note: If you have your own test images that you would like to upload into the application, contact email@example.com to have a private user profile created.
