ConQuest DICOM Server
Medical imaging and the resulting imagery are the responsibility of professionals who have at their disposal the appropriate hardware and software tools. When it comes to distributing or making these images available for a group of users users, it might be necessary to enlist the help of a utility like ConQuest DICOM Server.
This software solution runs right out of the box, without requiring installation, but you will have to spend a few minutes to configure it in order to have everything function properly. The great thing about this program is that once set up, all DICOM capable systems will have the possibility to access the images stored onto the server.
Adjusting the parameters of the application is not to difficult as it requires only a few things to be put in good order. More precisely, you will have to provide a unique local name for the server and the TCP/IP port it will make available for external connections.
An important mention that has to be made is that when connecting remotely to the server from any device, you should make sure to access only the server port you defined previously, otherwise there will be no connection with ConQuest DICOM Server.
Once you specify the folder where the DICOM images are stored, you can activate the JPEG(2000) support, decide the type of format in which the pictures are saved and the naming convention as well.
The TCP/IP and database installations can be checked from the corresponding tab of the server main window and in another module you will find a list of available maintenance tasks you can carry out.
Conducting queries is possible from the last tab of the main GUI and you have at your disposal a server monitoring area and a database browsing facility as well. Overall, ConQuest DICOM Server is pretty well equipped and, most importantly, very easy to configure and take care of, so the lack of more advanced features is barely noticed.
