The dcm4che suite of applications (DICOM toolkit, archive, etc.) are used worldwide by healthcare providers, research projects, open source applications, as well as commercial applications.  If your application or project uses dcm4che, please add it to this list!

  • TeraMedica Healthcare Technologiesuses the 1.x and 2.x DICOM toolkits in some test tools written for internal use at the company.  In addition, the dcm4chee archive is used as one of the systems that we perform integration tests against.
  • JanigaLabs uses dcm4chee as a central part of the PACS we maintain for Na Homolce hospital.
  • The Radiological Society of North America uses the 1.x DICOM toolkit for the open-source Medical Imaging Resource Center (MIRC) project. (Conversion to 2.x will occur by the end of 2006.) In the MIRC project (http://mircwiki.rsna.org), dcm4che is used in:
    • a teaching file and clinical trial server (MIRC),
    • an image acquisition tool (FieldCenter) used for clinical trials,
    • an implementation of the IHE TCE Export Manager (ExportManager)
    • a DICOM anonymizer which is part of many MIRC components,
    • a DICOM image viewer and editor (DicomEditor),
    • a DICOM image distribution tool (DicomRouter), and
    • a file transmission program (FileSender).
  • UCLA's Medical Imaging Informatics Group uses the dcm4che toolkit extensively in the openSourcePACS project (http://www.mii.ucla.edu/openSourcePACS/).  It currently provides:
    • Referral order web application for scheduling exams and viewing results
    • Radiology workstation to create DICOM presentation state and structured reports
    • Simple archive
  • dcm4cephis a tool that aims to aid the conversion of cepahlogram images into the DICOM format. It follows a proposed standard published as a Masters Thesis project at the Universidade de Brasília in September 2006 available from http://panio.antoniomagni.org.
  • The Department of Radiation Oncology in the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University has created several custom utilities using the DICOM toolkit that provide valuable services to our clinic:
    • flexible archiving of files,
    • editing of DICOM tags,
    • and access to image data for research purposes.
  • The good people of the MARiS-OF project use the dcm4che toolkit libraries to develop their DICOM and HL7 interfaces.
  • The Department of Radiation Oncology in the Washington University School of Medicine uses the dcm4che DICOM toolkit for DICOM Export and Optional Import within the Computational Environment for Radiotherapy Research (CERR) project.
  • In the Open Three (O3) Consortium project, dcm4che toolkit is used for the following systems:
    • O3-RWS the Open Three Radiology Workstation of the Open Three (O3) Consortium, is an Open Source, DICOM based, Internationalized, Modular and Portable Image Display actor plus the integration of several other IHE actors. It uses dcm4che libraries for the DICOM communication and for the image reading process. Main features:
      •  Patient history panel
      •  Study/series preview
      •  MIRC query/creation tool
      •  Enhanced Multimonitor support/optimization
      •  Local files explorer
      •  Internationalization (English, German, Italian, Russian, Slovenian, and any the language available on demand
      •  Full remote support available on demand, through internet or dedicated channels, with very fast response times
    • O3-DPACS, "Open Three Data & Picture Archiving and Communication System" of the Open Three (O3) Consortium, is a DICOM & HL7 based IHE compliant Open Source PACS extended to any type of data. It uses dcm4che libraries for the DICOM & HL7 communication. Main features:
      • IHE Image Manager/Archive
      • XDS publishing support
      • ATNA security support
      • Reporting workflow support
      • Remote Administration
      • Internationalization (English, Italian, Slovenian, and any the language available on demand)
      • Full remote support available on demand, through internet or dedicated channels, with very fast response times
  • SecureRADutilizes dcm4chee as a component of its on and offsite medical image archive services. SecureRAD is a provider of innovative technology solutions and consulting services for the medical imaging community.
  • opendicomutilizes dcm4chee as a component of its on and offsite medical image archive services. Opendicom is an uruguayan service company using and contributing to opensource software specialized in dicom conectivity, storage, distribution, viewing, workflow, integration with IHE and custom solutions design. Developpers of opendicom are active in dcm4chee, osirix, K-Pacs, Charruasoft.
  • osirix invites its users(mac platform) to trust only solid pacs and refers to dcm4chee on Apple Mac OSX and to Pablo Sau's "CDmedic" adaptation of CTN to the Macintosh platform.
  • Institute of Clinical Physyologya CNR institute of Italy, uses the dcm4chee application as the Image manager for all images coming from all modalities present in the institute, these are Xray angiography, Magnetic Resonance imaging, CT-PET, Ultrasound, Digital Radiography. Also it uses the dcm4che library to implement some crucial services involving DICOM protocol.
  • The Innovation Centre of Computer Assisted Surgery (ICCAS)uses dcm4chee as an experimental PACS server and as an Open Source framework to support researches in the creation of an S-PACS (Surgical PACS) based on S-DICOM (DICOM for Surgery).
  • J4Care utilizes dcm4che components within its services.J4Careoffers citizens services for improved access to better health systems with the goal to empower both patients and healthcare professionals.
