DICOM Hanging Protocol is a part of the DICOM standard (PS3.3: Hanging Protocols - Informative, and DICOM Supplement 60) as a way to define a series of actions that the viewer to applies to a study to provide optimal viewing. LEADTOOLS supports querying, retrieving, processing, and storing Hanging Protocol data sets in various parts of LEADTOOLS, including the HTML5 Zero-footprint Medical Viewer and LEADTOOLS DICOM Storage Server.
The inclusion of DICOM Hanging Protocols in the LEADTOOLS HTML5 Zero-footprint Medical Web Viewer provides developers with an easy way to create a universal, multi-discipline viewer. Few products on the market offer full DICOM Hanging Protocol support quite the way LEADTOOLS does. Developers and integrators are able to create next-generation viewing software for use in large hospitals and enterprises housing varied medical departments (e.g., radiology, cardiology, mammography, dental, etc.), which can all share a single vendor-neutral archive (VNA).
Overview of LEADTOOLS DICOM Hanging Protocol SDK Technology
LEADTOOLS provides developers and integrators a full DICOM Hanging Protocol implementation that supports Priors, Cell Layout, Cell Timing, Alignment, Sorting, Patient Orientation, VOI Type, Grayscale Inverted, Image True Size, Reference Line, MPR Arrangement (Coronal, Sagittal, and Axial), Synchronized Scrolling, and Cine. Moreover, LEAD engineers have streamlined the creation of Hanging Protocol data sets by allowing the end-user to set up the layout and view using their images. Then LEADTOOLS intelligently uses the metadata of the images to create default filters that the end-user can adjust before saving the Hanging Protocol data set. This streamlined creation workflow removes the complexities normally associated with the creation of DICOM standard Hanging Protocol data sets.
