DICOM Hanging Protocol is a new feature in LEADTOOLS Version 19 that helps doctors and radiologists save time when viewing studies.

Before digital imaging, Doctors hung film sheets on an illuminator, or light box. Typically, the sheets were printed and hung in specific locations and orders, thus the name “Hanging Protocol." This can be difficult to reproduce digitally, but the DICOM standards define ways of matching and displaying a patient’s images that doctors can configure, reuse, and share.
