Currently you can't connect to PACS. However, check us back in a few weeks, we should have a beta version ready for testing.

This will be a great tool, we use Osirix in Mac as a PACs server but many people told us about radiant, the tools its easy and fast but add the possibility of connection to standard pacs will be a great feature

Cheer too. But you can put in separate installation or version (may be just a service on tray icon) because I like the beauty of compact footprint of Radiant.

We will think about two separate installer versions (PACS/non-PACS). Thanks for your suggestion!

Is this available yet? Great product but lack of connection to PACS for send/receive images is a caveat

PACS connection will be a milestone in the development.

When can we expect the PACS connectivity in RadiAnt?

Having underestimated a bit the effort and after a few "distractions" we decided not to give any predictions until we have a beta version ready for testing.
Still, we will try to keep our goal of making 2013 a "PACS" year for RadiAnt :-)

2013 is ending. will we have a PACS surprise before Xmas or it will probably see the light in 2014?

If I told you now, it wouldn't be a surprise anymore. Still, it's a few weeks left until Xmas. Anything could happen ;-)

Ok, someone please give paper and pencil, I have to write an urgent letter to Santa Claus :-)

Well, I can share a few things... The first public beta version will have a simple query & retrieve functionality. Local database will be available a few months later. Only then a simple PACS server functionality will be implemented. As always, our goal is simplicity and the best possible efficiency.

I bet you will score this goal too.
You are the "Zibi Boniek" of DICOM :-)

I have a worklist interface for PACS archive, what I want to do is pass on study UID or accession number as a command line argument while launching Radiant viewer from our software. While it gets launched it should start retrieving requested study from PACS & start displaying images simultaneously. The viewer should allow this without first doing Dicom query. This scenario is very common when somebody wants to view images from HIS/RIS.

Thanks! Just don't compare us to the current soccer team ;-)

Having Q&R functionality implemented, the feature you're asking for is just a few lines of code. So you can definitely expect it (probably even in the first beta).

Any chance we will have a Radiant PACS server christmas present?

Definitely not a PACS server. First implementation will feature only PACS client functionality.

Hi Maciej,

We would like to know the avaiabality of PACS connection feature in Radiant. This topics was started a year back and we are eagerly waiting for your announcement.

I think we should be patient. PACS is a milestone feature and will take time and efforts to be correctly implemented. I bet hte RadiAnt team is workin hard on it.

Hi Rupesh & Tommy,

first of all, a nice text about why software development task estimation is usually inaccurate: http://www.quora.com/Engineering-Management/Why-are-software-development-task-estimations-regularly-off-by-a-factor-of-2-3 ;-)

March/April (2014) is current estimation for the release of a beta version with PACS query & retrieve functionality.

This error means that some other software uses the 11112 port on your PC. You can change this port in the PACS settings: http://www.radiantviewer.com/dicom-viewer-manual/pacs-configuration.htm

As long as this server supports C-FIND SCP, C-MOVE SCP and C-STORE SCU. Please check with the documentation of your server.

Our viewer is build for Windows platform.
It can run on Mac OSX, however it is not officially supported.
You can see the process of installation on this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Tbo7RUTv_4

You have to run some kind of PACS server/workstation on the other PC, which will allow you to use the RadiAnt PACS client feature: http://www.radiantviewer.com/dicom-viewer-manual/pacs-connectivity.htm
