Load study from a CD to PACS

#1 Post by Geof » Thu, 2011-11-24, 15:18

I would like to know how it is possible to load Study stored on a CD or DVD to a PACS server. Is it possible to do that with precompiled dcmtk utilities?

Thank you

Hi,

no that is not possible without some extra scripting.

You may write a script that runs dcmdump on the media's DICOMDIR and then filter with your script all the file locations inside the file.

Then simply run storescu or even better dcmsend on all file names (with path) in order to send them to the PACS.

Best regards,
Michael

Ok I will check for a scripting solution. If it is not enough I will use the library directly.

Thank you

You might be interested in a new feature for "dcmsend" that I'm currently working on: Optionally, read the relevant information from a DICOMDIR, i.e. send all referenced DICOM files in the same way as other DICOM files :-)

I'll let you know when the required changes are committed ...

Here it is. The required changes will also be part of the next DCMTK snapshot ...
