How to pass image layout to Print SCP server

#1 Post by mail2vguna » Wed, 2021-02-24, 18:07

Hi

I am using DCMTK DICOM Print trial version. 3.6.5 version in c++.

How can i pass the image layout like 2X2, 3X2 , 4X2 , 5X5 etc to tcpsrv(DICOM Print SCP) server from tcpprt(DICOM Print SCU Client) via command line?

tcpprt.exe --config tcpprt.cfg --target localhost:104 --aetitle DICOM_PRINT 1.dcm

What should i add the data for image layout.

Thanks. Much appreciated your quick reply.
Thanks
Guna

In order to do this with the tcpprt command line tool, you first need to change the configuration file (tcpprt.cfg). As a starting point, you can change this line, which is below the [[AUTO-1]] headline:
ImageDisplayFormat = STANDARD\1,1
into
ImageDisplayFormat = STANDARD\2,2
and then run tcpprt with
tcpprt.exe --config tcpprt.cfg --target localhost:104 --aetitle DICOM_PRINT --auto 1 1.dcm 2.dcm 3.dcm 4.dcm (if you want to print four images on one sheet)
To make this more flexible, you should copy the whole section starting with [[AUTO-1]] to the end of the file, change the headline, e.g. into [[AUTO-1]],
and then you can use either --auto 1 or --auto 2 as parameters to select different layouts, e.g. 1/1 and 2/2.
