what are differences between a dicom node and a dicom server.
i have build a smal client based on dcmtk. this client is cappable : C-
echo, C-find, C-move. no more ( not C-store scu or more...)
just simples questions.
what is a dicom node and what are differences between a dicom node and
a dicom server. ?
my client is a dicom node ?
to be a dicom node my client need a send/transfert fonction (-C-store
I am not aware of any definition/use of the terms "dicom server" or
"dicom node" in the standard text.

All of the DICOM libraries I have looked at seem to use a thread based
approach to serving SCU requests. Each new SCU request spawns a new thread,
and all protocol negotiation and data transmission occurs in this new thread.
An alternative is the event-driven approach: a single event loop runs and receives callbacks when certain events are triggered:
(eg. socket event, file read)
and then handles the event:
(eg. accept socket, write data to socket).
This approach avoids the overhead of thread creation and context switching,
and so is much more efficient.
Are there any libraries out there that use an event-driven approach? Is the DICOM network protocol suitable for this approach, driven by callbacks?

I am wondering if anyone has ever tried to work on the following issue. I need to execute a series of test on a remote DICOM Q/R server. Actually running the tests is IMHO much safer than reading there DICOM Conformance Statement(tm).
As an implementation detail of the test suite, I am running the following (DCMTK style command):

First off, I am new to the site so please bear with me and feel free to offer up any advice on how to better pose questions for this forum. Now on to the nitty gritty.
I am currently trying to overlay contours contained in a Dicom RT 'STRUCT' file onto CT slices that are in the standard Dicom format. So far I have been able to overlay the contour (of a Brainstem) onto the correct CT slice. The problem arises from there being an inherent offset of the contour to the actual CT slice. I am trying to rectify this but have been unsuccessful so far.

Actually we wanted to print DICOM image using DICOM print management.
So we are implementing DICOM print SCU.
But the problem is along with the image we also want to print some
infomations like patient name and patient ID etc..Is there any
possible way for that??
Thanks and Regards,

I'm looking at this sentence:
"Access and store images in DICOM or raw data DICOM formats to meet
medical digital communication standards "
It comes from here: http://www.gehealthcare.com/euen/ultrasound/ultrasound-it/echopac-pc/index.html
And all I can think is .. "Wait, what?" What exactly is the
difference? What do they _mean_ ?
> "Access and store images in DICOM or raw data DICOM formats to meet

DICOM or raw DICOM... wait, _what_? ;o)
> What exactly is the
> difference? What do they _mean_ ?
Probably the author of this sentence is referring to storage of private
information as DICOM Raw Data IOD. Just guessing: This may refer 3D
Ultrasound data which is described in Supplement 43.
Supplement 43 was released in April 2009 and defines:
Enhanced US Volume Storage 1.2.840.10008.5.1.4.18.104.22.168
Arterial Pulse Waveform Storage 1.2.840.10008.5.1.4.22.214.171.124.1
Respiratory Waveform Storage 1.2.840.10008.5.1.4.126.96.36.199.1
General Audio Waveform Storage 1.2.840.10008.5.1.4.188.8.131.52.2
Maybe Supp. 43 was released too late for the device discussed on this
page to make its objects Supplement 43 compliant. Thus it stores the
"modern" data objects not in Enhanced Ultrasound IOD but as DICOM Raw
DICOM Raw Data IOD has the advantage over private IODs that Storage and

Hi to all,
Just had a quick question about accessing the full parameter list for dicom/dicom RT files. I am using someone else's starter code to open the dicom RT file and when I display the header not all of the available parameters are listed there. In the code template that I am using several paramters are referenced but I have no idea where they are coming from. They appear to be very useful and I would like to be able to manipulate them in later coding I just have no idea how extensive the final list is or where to begin to look for it!

I think this would be very useful to the DICOM community to make it
a full DICOM conformance data tests. For example in the XML world they

This clearly indicate which part of the standard is being tested,
and more important what is the correct behavior of a validating parser
and non-validating parser.
We just got a 3D ultrasound machine, which has a nice feature to push
the acquired dicom digital images through the network. We tried to
use Osirix that was configured to listen to the network for incoming
dicom images, and it worked. But because Osirix is only available on
a mac, we would like to explore other options. Anyone knows if
Matlab has such capability? Or, if Labview has (we integrated matlab
into our labview system)?
Thanks very much.
