DICOS CFind & CGet

by DICOS CFind & CGet, 2016/03/18

I am using Stratovan DICOS Toolkit released in November 2015. I find that Echo & CStore commands are supported by the Server. But CFnd & CGet commands are not available. Am I missing something? Could you please help me in finding support for this commands in the Toolkit?

This is correct. We have implemented only the C-Echo and C-Store capabilities but not the others. This was intentional. In considering how DICOS could be applied to the airport environment, we determined that a "push" methodology for data workflow was ideal. The C-Get and C-Find methods support the methodology used with hospital environments which is not scalable when considering high data volume that exists in checked baggage within airports. That said, how DICOS ultimately is used within the airport is still to be determined. Please let me know if you have any more questions and comments.

Thank You David. Does your toolkit support WADO (Web Access to DICOM Objects)? If it supports do you think we could use WADO in place of CFind & CGet?
