Pure python implementation of the DICOM network protocol

Project description

pynetdicom is a pure python package implementing the DICOM network protocol. Working with pydicom, it allows DICOM clients (SCUs) and servers (SCPs) to be easily created. DICOM is a standard (http://medical.nema.org) for communicating medical images and related information such as reports and radiotherapy objects.

The main class is AE and represent an application entity. User typically create an ApplicationEntity object, specifying the SOP service class supported as SCP and SCU, and a port to listen to. The user then starts the ApplicationEntity which runs in a thread. The use can initiate associations as SCU or respond to remote SCU association with the means of callbacks.
