18. Third Party Tools¶
The following tools are developed by third parties. NVIDIA is not responsible for design or maintenance of these tools. The tools are mentioned below in the hope that Clara Application developers find them useful to design, review and debug their medical imaging applications.
Description from the tool website “Orthanc aims at providing a simple, yet powerful standalone DICOM server. It is designed to improve the DICOM flows in hospitals and to support research about the automated analysis of medical images. Orthanc lets its users focus on the content of the DICOM files, hiding the complexity of the DICOM format and of the DICOM protocol.
Orthanc provides a RESTful API. The DICOM tags of the stored medical images can be downloaded in the JSON file format. Furthermore, standard PNG images can be generated on-the-fly from the DICOM instances by Orthanc.
Orthanc also features a plugin mechanism to add new modules that extends the core capabilities of its REST API. A Web viewer, a PostgreSQL database back-end, a MySQL database back-end, and a reference implementation of DICOMweb are currently freely available as plugins.”
Description from the tool website - “DCM4CHE is a collection of open source applications and utilities for the healthcare enterprise. At the core of the dcm4che project is a robust implementation of the DICOM standard. “
18.2.2. How to Install¶
You can download DCM4CHE at https://www.dcm4che.org/
To install and run a Docker image of DCM4CHE, visit https://github.com/dcm4che/dcm4chee-arc-light/wiki/Running-on-Docker
18.3. 3D Slicer¶
Description from the tool website - “3D Slicer is an open source software platform for medical image informatics, image processing, and three-dimensional visualization. Built over two decades through support from the National Institutes of Health and a worldwide developer community, Slicer brings free, powerful cross-platform processing tools to physicians, researchers, and the general public. “
18.4. OHIF Viewer¶
Description from the tool website - “OHIS Viewer is a zero-footprint medical image viewer provided by the Open Health Imaging Foundation (OHIF). It is a configurable and extensible progressive web application with out-of-the-box support for image archives which support DICOMweb.“
Description from the tool website - “Oviyam is a web based DICOM Viewer. Using standard DICOM protocols patient lists can be queried, particular series or studies retrieved and be displayed as JPEG images in your browser. Oviyam will work with any DICOM server that supports WADO (Web Access to DICOM Persistent Objects).”
Description from the tool website - “Horos is a free, open source medical image viewer. The goal of the Horos Project is to develop a fully functional, 64-bit medical image viewer for OS X. Horos is based upon OsiriX and other open source medical imaging libraries. ”
