DICOM Storage Server Framework SDK Technology

The LEADTOOLS DICOM Storage Server Framework is a collection of high-level .NET (C# & VB) components engineered for quickly building robust, feature-rich, and secure DICOM Storage Server applications. The framework is a perfect solution for both developers and IT staff because of its fully functional, OEM-ready application. This gives implementers a PACS solution they can use right out of the box. For developers, the source code to the application is provided for easy branding and customization.

The DICOM Storage Server Framework is built upon a large collection of extensible add-in components that organize the core functions as well as provide a simple means for creating tailored solutions for end-users.

Overview of DICOM Storage Server Framework SDK Technology

The DICOM Storage Server Framework uses the high-level PACS Server Framework as a service application (daemon) and implements the following DICOM Services as a service class provider (SCP/Server):

  • Verification service (C-ECHO, DICOM Ping)
  • Find service (C-FIND) - Patient and Study Query
  • Move service (C-GET, C-MOVE) - Patient and Study Retrieve
  • Storage service (C-STORE) - Full Level 2 DICOM Storage Service for all standard SOP classes
  • Storage Commitment service
  • Modality Worklist service (MWL)
  • Modality Performed Procedure Step service (MPPS)

In addition, the LEADTOOLS DICOM Storage Server Framework implements the following real-world functionalities and customizable add-ins:

  • Easily customizable user interface
  • Abstract Data Access Layer (DAL) design that works with any database
  • Handle simultaneous TCP/IP client connections and view them live in the Server UI
  • Efficient large query performance through pagination and lazy loading
  • Export DICOM data sets and DICOMDIRs with or without anonymization
  • Logging Add-in that supports many filtering and searching options, including automatic export of logs
  • Patient Updater Add-in that includes a patient/study management client that allows users to move, merge, and update patient information using DICOM communications
  • Auto-Copy Add-in that automatically routes retrieved DICOM image data to multiple storage locations
  • Gateway Add-in that acts as a query/retrieve proxy, automatically relaying a single query/retrieve message to any number of external DICOM servers
  • Forwarding Add-in that allows DICOM image data to be automatically forwarded to another PACS server immediately upon storage or on any schedule
  • Microsoft Message Queue to communicate with other services on the network
  • Enable C-Move for anonymous connections
  • Administrative options, including permissions for both users and AE titles
  • Apply custom aliases to AE titles
  • On-the-fly transfer syntax re-encoding based on established association
  • HL7 Listener Service and Patient Updater Service
  • Optional external cloud storage Add-ins for EMC Atmos and Microsoft Azure
