DICOM query retrieve tools
DICOM Server Access
Dcmfetch is a python package for retrieving images from a DICOM server. The package does not provide a DICOm trnasport itself but wraps either the command line utilies from dcm4che3 or the native python librarypynetdicom. In addition, bundled standalone versions of the required dcm4che3 tools are included so the only mandatory external (non-python) dependency for the dcm4che3 option is a working java runtime. Further details on installation and use are available here.
The DICOM server must support the dicom
c-get protocols (not just
This is the case for the
dcm4chee server, though several other common servers do not as yet support
c-get. In addition though,
dcmfetch supports access to servers such as orthanc using the
WADO-RS web REST APIs instead.
DICOM servers are identified by keys in the configuration file
dcmnodes.cf. This file encodes the server details (AET, most, port) together with a string representing facilities supported by the server (including the web API if available). This file is typically installed to the directory
/etc on a unix system.
As well as the python package
dcmfetch two utilities are provided:
dcmfetch a command line program to retrieve series and
dcmfetchtool a PyQt based graphical tool.
This package is made available under the MIT licence. The included dcm4che3 programs are distributed under the Mozilla public licence; the only modification here has been to bundle them into single executables.
