folder scanner for DICOM cases

I wonder if it would be possible to add a "folder DICOM scanner" just to show a table with patients name list and exams from which you can subsequently load the one you desire.

I found myself in the situation to inspect folders where multiple DICOM case are stored but have folder names like "1.2.392.200036.9125.2.18417211173215.64768702452.257237" and other with similar numbers so I can't recognize where's the patient I'm looking for unless I load them all in RadiAnt viewer. this can take time and it's annoying.

a simple text table where you only read the DICOM tags without loading the images would probably be faster.

I have iQ-VIEW and they have such a feature... you scan a folder, it shows you a list of cases that are inside that folder and then you flag checkboxes to load jsut the one you need-

Sure, this would be quite helpful in browsing multiple folders/studies.
Now, let's only find a free time slot ;-)

I wonder if the new DB function could scan a CD or a folder and give you a text preview list of the DICOM cases found inside and then let you decide wheter to download them or not

This would be actually a separate functionality but we'll consider it.
