Print To PACS SDK Technology

LEADTOOLS includes a set of high-level .NET (C# & VB) components to integrate robust capture functionality into any PACS workflow or infrastructure. LEADTOOLS Print to PACS technology captures images and documents, associates the captured data with studies on a PACS, and stores the captured data to a PACS as a secondary capture and DICOM Encapsulated PDF object. This utility is ideal to incorporate legacy, non-digital, and non-DICOM-compliant applications and devices into a fully digital system, and eliminates the need for costly replacements.

LEADTOOLS Print To PACS Overview

  • Insert images into a DICOM data set by capturing the image data from a Printer Driver, TWAIN or WIA acquisition, disk, and screen
  • Fill the required DICOM metadata by manual entry, PACS server query, and data from existing DICOM data sets
  • Save the resulting DICOM data set to disk and store to PACS
  • Full source code for the Print To PACS application is provided for easy customization and branding

Capture Options:

  • Virtual Printer Driver - capture the print output from any Windows application by printing directly to the PrintToPACS Printer Driver
  • TWAIN - scan images from any TWAIN device
  • WIA - capture images from digital devices and media using the WIA interface
  • SANE - Linux SANE frontend API to capture images from devices
  • Screen Capture - capture any object, window, selected area, and full screen
  • Direct Image Import - load more than 150+ image file formats, including PDF
  • Capture from the clipboard

Output DICOM Storage Object Options:

  • Secondary Capture Image Storage
  • Multi-frame Secondary Capture Grayscale Byte Image Storage
  • Multi-frame Secondary Capture True Color Image Storage
  • DICOM Encapsulated PDF

DICOM Patient/Study Metadata Collection Options:

  • Modality Worklist (MWL) - query any worklist server for scheduled work items and patient/study information
  • Query PACS - query any PACS for existing studies and associate the newly captured images to an existing patient or study
  • DICOM Data Set File - import the patient/study information from an existing DICOM data set file on disk
  • Manual Entry - manually enter the required information

Compression Option:

  • Lossless JPEG
  • Lossy JPEG

White Papers Written About Print To PACS

  • Using Print to PACS to Digitize Your Legacy Medical Imaging Systems

    Incorporating a digital Picture Archival and Communication System (PACS) is a must-have in today's health care industry for many reasons. Besides the obvious benefits to productivity, speed, collaboration, automation, and so on, there are many government grants and subsidies that providers can qualify for by showing Meaningful Use. The majority of requirements of doing so revolve around digitally capturing and presenting health care-related information to improve ease of use and accessibility for individuals, families, and health care workers. This white paper will show how LEADTOOLS Print to PACS can be used as a final cog in your digital migration and aid in the completion of Meaningful Use requirements.
