RadiAnt DICOM Viewer 4.9.14 BETA - import from ZIP into DB

Dec 12, 2018 09:34 AM

In the latest beta we've added option to import ZIP files directly into DB.
Also, the long awaited support for encrypted ZIP files is here.
Supported encryption modes: Zip 2.0, AES128, AES192, AES256.

Just a little questions,

1. How can import images just linking them, not extracting content to harddisk?

2. There is common scenario that radiologists store their studies in external HDD in ZIP files. Is it possible to save also .rdvdb file in external HDD so that anytime one can open database and view studies.

3. Are the studies in .rdvdb files stored with full path or relative path?

Thank you! May be is necessary add support for RAR 4, RAR 5 files.

Any chance to support the open 7z format also?

No further compression formats are planned in the near future. We will explore this possibility later.

1. Currently ZIP import can work only by extracting files to the database folder.
2. Yes, it's possible to save the DB on an external HDD. However, all files need to be stored in the DB folder.
3. If the files are copied to the DB folder, their numeric IDs are stored in the DB. When the files are added to the DB, their full paths are stored. We will probably also add an option to store relative paths when the files are added to the DB.

The local database feature is crucial. If it really works I will give up the idea of buying mac just for the purpose of running osirix on it.

@GR I think exactly like you. If the local database works as planned no more buying a mac just for Horus/Osirix.
That is why I asked on another post about GPU performance. Most budget PCs come with an MX150 so if it is capable of handling 3D, MPR and MIP we could also save the cost of buying a PC with a more expensive GPU like the 1050 or 1060.

GPU performance with the laptop GTX 1050 with 2GB VRAM is excellent, it even works with the Intel integrated graphics (I have tried these two options). As MX150 is halfway between these two, I think it will work well with the MX150 too (I have not tried it with CT series with more than 900 slices per series).
How many slices are there in your average CT series/exams?

I am very very happy to see that Radiant is evolving so well and in a very good direction. Local database manager is a great feature and I have been waiting for it with such impatience.
Things that I would like to see in the future are curved MPR, closed polygon tool, some CLUTs (Flow, French and UCLA) and arrow tool (my freehand drawn arrows are just plain ugly).
Many thaks to the developers for the great job.

@Bane Lukac
Thanks for the feedback. My average series consists of about 400 images and a typical exam has about 1200 images.
Think I´m gonna go for the MX150.

I wonder if there are image filters to make them sharper or less sharp as in other programs the use of sharp leaving the outlines more evident

Currently there are no image filters in RadiAnt.
