       dicomscope - DICOM Viewer


       dicomscope DICOMFile.dcm


       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
       structured reporting.

       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.
