DICOMweb

Plugin to bring support of the DICOMweb standard into Orthanc.

 

Introduction

"DICOMweb is the Web standard for medical imaging. It is primarily a set of RESTful services."

Out-of-the-box, Orthanc comes with its own REST API. This API allows full CRUD operations (create, read, update and delete) on the set of DICOM resources that Orthanc stores, together with commands that trigger calls to the DICOM protocol (C-Echo SCU/SCP, C-Store SCU/SCP, C-Find SCU/SCP, C-Move SCU/SCP).

The present plugin extends the native REST API of Orthanc with a reference implementation of the DICOMweb standard. Loading the plugin into Orthanc will provide support of WADO-URI (previously known simply as WADO), WADO-RS, QIDO-RS and STOW-RS.

The full standard is not implemented yet, the supported features are tracked in the repository.

Licensing

The code of the Web viewer plugin is licensed under the Affero General Public License (AGPL). Pay attention to the fact that this license is more restrictive than the license of the Orthanc core.
