SOPClassUID Encapsulated PDF Storage

Can anybody help me?

With RadiAnt Viewer we can open DICOM files containing PDF inside?

DicomTag.SOPClassUID: DicomUID.EncapsulatedPDFStorage
DicomTag.Modality: "DOC"
DicomTag.BurnedInAnnotation: "YES"
DicomTag.DocumentTitle: "..."
DicomTag.VerificationFlag, "UNVERIFIED"
DicomTag.MIMETypeOfEncapsulatedDocument: "application/pdf"
DicomTag.EncapsulatedDocument: byte[] pdf

If it is not, they are thinking about including it in future versions?

Thank you very much.

Good Morning,
thank you all for this wonderful software.
When sending encapsulated pdf's we have the following error:

E: No presentation context found for sending C-STORE with SOP Class / Transfer Syntax: EncapsulatedPDFStorage / Little Endian Implicit

How to solve this?
Thank you.

DICOM send feature is provided via an external add-on (based on the DCMTK toolkit). So we cannot guarantee that it will work in every scenario...
Based on the error message, it seems that the destination PACS does not support receiving encapsulated PDF DICOMs.
