PACS integration

 

RadiAnt DICOM Viewer can be integrated with other systems via command line arguments or radiant:// URL protocol. You can launch the viewer, start downloading specific DICOM studies and display them using simple commands or by clicking specially crafted radiant:// links in web browsers.

 

Use the argument "-pstv" followed by one or more pairs of tag ID/value:

 

radiantviewer.exe -pstv 00080050 "1412-14-ACCESSION-NUMBER"

 

radiant://?n=pstv&v=00080050&v=%221412-14-ACCESSION-NUMBER%22

 

1. To download a specific study (StudyUID needs to be passed)

 

radiantviewer.exe -pstv 0020000D "1.4.24.2.1107.StudyUID"

 

radiant://?n=pstv&v=0020000D&v=%221.4.24.2.1107.StudyUID%22

 

2. To download a specific series (StudyUID and SeriesUID need to be passed)

 

radiantviewer.exe -pstv 0020000D "1.4.24.2.1107.StudyUID" 0020000E "1.4.24.2.1107.SeriesUID"

 

radiant://?n=pstv&v=0020000D&v=%221.4.24.2.1107.StudyUID%22&v=0020000E&v=%221.4.24.2.1107.SeriesUID%22

 

3. To download a specific image (StudyUID, SeriesUID and SOPInstanceUID need to be passed)

 

radiantviewer.exe -pstv 0020000D "1.4.24.2.1107.StudyUID" 0020000E "1.4.24.2.1107.SeriesUID" 00080018 "1.4.24.2.1107.SopInstanceUID"

 

radiant://?n=pstv&v=0020000D&v=%221.4.24.2.1107.StudyUID%22&v=0020000E&v=%221.4.24.2.1107.SeriesUID%22&v=00080018&v=%221.4.24.2.1107.SopInstanceUID%22

 

By default, all PACS nodes configured in RadiAnt are searched. You can define only one PACS node by using "-paet" and its AE title:

 

radiantviewer.exe -paet MYPACSAETITLE -pstv 00100020 "23874623-PATIENTID"

 

radiant://?n=paet&v=MYPACSAETITLE&n=pstv&v=00100020&v=%2223874623-PATIENTID%22

 

Downloading multiple studies/series/images

 

Multiple studies/series/images can be downloaded using only one command by passing several -pstv arguments.

 

1. Two studies

 

radiantviewer.exe -pstv 0020000D "STUDYUID1" -pstv 0020000D "STUDYUID2"

 

radiant://?n=pstv&v=0020000D&v=%22STUDYUID1%22&n=pstv&v=0020000D&v=%22STUDYUID2%22

 

2. Two series of the same study

 

radiantviewer.exe -pstv 0020000D "STUDYUID1" -pstv 0020000E "SERIESUID1" -pstv 0020000E "SERIESUID2"

 

radiant://?n=pstv&v=0020000D&v=%22STUDYUID1%22&n=pstv&v=0020000E&v=%22SERIESUID1%22&n=pstv&v=0020000E&v=%22SERIESUID2%22

 

3. Different series from two different studies

 

radiantviewer.exe -pstv 0020000D "STUDYUID1" -pstv 0020000E "SERIESUID1" -pstv 0020000E "SERIESUID2" -pstv 0020000D "STUDYUID2" -pstv 0020000E "SERIESUID3" -pstv 0020000E "SERIESUID4"

 

radiant://?n=pstv&v=0020000D&v=%22STUDYUID1%22&n=pstv&v=0020000E&v=%22SERIESUID1%22&n=pstv&v=0020000E&v=%22SERIESUID2%22&n=pstv&v=0020000D&v=%22STUDYUID2%22&n=pstv&v=0020000E&v=%22SERIESUID3%22&n=pstv&v=0020000E&v=%22SERIESUID4%22

 

4. Several images from different series of the same study

 

radiantviewer.exe -pstv 0020000D "STUDYUID1" -pstv 0020000E "SERIESUID1" -pstv 00080018 "INSTANCEUID1" -pstv 00080018 "INSTANCEUID2" -pstv 0020000E "SERIESUID2" -pstv 00080018 "INSTANCEUID3" -pstv 00080018 "INSTANCEUID4"

 

radiant://?n=pstv&v=0020000D&v=%22STUDYUID1%22&n=pstv&v=0020000E&v=%22SERIESUID1%22&n=pstv&v=00080018&v=%22INSTANCEUID1%22&n=pstv&v=00080018&v=%22INSTANCEUID2%22&n=pstv&v=0020000E&v=%22SERIESUID2%22&n=pstv&v=00080018&v=%22INSTANCEUID3%22&n=pstv&v=00080018&v=%22INSTANCEUID4%22
