dicomscope - DICOM Viewer
This manual page documents briefly the dicomscope command.
DICOMscope is a free DICOM viewer which can display uncompressed,
monochrome DICOM images from all modalities and which supports monitor
calibration according to DICOM part 14 as well as presentation states.
DICOMscope offers a print client (DICOM Basic Grayscale Print
Management) which also implements the optional Presentation LUT SOP
Class. The development of this prototype was commissioned by the
"Committee for the Advancement of DICOM" and demonstrated at the
European Congress of Radiology ECR 1999. An enhanced version was
developed for the "DICOM Display Consistency Demonstration" at RSNA
InfoRAD 1999. The current release 3.5.1 has been demonstrated at ECR
2001 and contains numerous extensions, including a print server,
support for encrypted DICOM communication, digital signatures and
DICOMscope is not meant as a competition for commercial DICOM viewers.
The application is rather a feasibility study for DICOM presentation
states. The program is not appropriate to be used in a clinical
environment, e.g. for reporting.
