Complete medical imaging and PACS client/server SDK.

LEADTOOLS PACS Imaging SDK consists of LEADTOOLS Medical Imaging with added DICOM PACS functionality including a PACS enabled Web Viewer Framework SDK and the DICOM PACS client/server Framework SDK. LEADTOOLS PACS Imaging SDK includes everything developers need to create end to end enterprise PACS solutions.

LEADTOOLS PACS Imaging includes everything developers need to create end to end enterprise PACS solutions:

  • Includes full support for DICOM messaging to quickly implement any DICOM client and server services.
  • DICOM secure communications are made simple to help protect confidential patient information.
  • Supports all storage IOD classes and service classes defined in the DICOM version 3 2008 base standard.
  • Extensive sample applications with source code are provided to show the implementation of many commonly used DICOM services as service class user (SCU) and service class provider (SCP) perspective.
  • Includes several interfaces to meet the needs of any developer. Low level C DLL and C++ class libraries are provided for the most flexibility available in any PACS SDK. Additionally, a high level PACS framework is included. The framework takes care of the behind the scenes coding so you can spend more time on adding additional features and usability.

In addition to PACS, LEAD's imaging support is one of the richest in the industry:

  • Supports 8, 10, 12, 16, 24 and 32 bit images including JPEG (8, 10 , 12, 16-bit Lossless grayscale, 8, 12-bit lossy grayscale, 24-bit lossless and lossy color), Run Length, Uncompressed, Photometric Interpretation (Monochrome1, Monochrome2, Palletized, RGB, ARGB, CMYK, YBR Full 422, YBR Full), and single and multi-page.
  • LEAD’s Medical Imaging toolkit includes 8-16 bit grayscale display with window leveling using a user defined color map (LUT or palette) or linear gray LUT.
  • Thousands of image processing functions supporting the full range of color depths including 12-16 bit grayscale and signed image data.

Also, LEADTOOLS PACS Imaging includes all the features you need to build a full web-based DICOM-enabled viewing application.

Why choose to use LEADTOOLS' DICOM support:

  • Support for 8, 10, 12, 16, 24 and 32 bit grayscale images including JPEG (8, 10, 12, 16-bit Lossless grayscale, 8, 12 bit lossy grayscale, 24-bit lossless and lossy color), JPEG2000 (including lossy and lossless 8-16 bit grayscale images and 24-bit color) Run Length, Uncompressed, Photometric Interpretation (Monochrome1, Monochrome2, Palletized, RGB, ARGB, CMYK, YBR Full 422, YBR Full, YBR_RCT, YBR_ICT), and single and multi-frame images.
  • MPEG-2 Compression in DICOM.
  • Complete support for the DICOM 3, including all standard IOD classes and modalities (CR, CT, MR, NM, US, RF, SC, VL, etc.) and VR's (value representations)
  • Provides easy implementation and full support for DICOM Basic Directory. High-level objects to create DICOMDIR in few lines of code.
  • Change one transfer syntax to another transfer syntax with one function call.
  • Automatic recognition of DICOM files (Little-Endian/Big-Endian, Implicit/Explicit VR, etc.) High level and low level functions for easy navigation and manipulation (insert, delete, modify) of Data Sets
  • DICOM LUT/Overlay/Palette support. The high-level support for Modality LUT, VOI LUT, Palette Color Image in LEADTOOLS Medical Imaging means developers can implement DICOM Presentation state into an application with ease. LEADTOOLS can also apply the Modality LUT to the image data to further simplify image processing and statistical calculations.
  • DICOM Annotation Object support. Store/retrieve DICOM annotations from a dataset and convert them to LEAD Annotation objects and vice versa. Annotations can also be converted to regions of interest for additional statistical calculations and for storing to DICOM Presentation State.
  • Use Digital Signature Profiles to ensure data has not been tampered. LEADTOOLS is the first commercial toolkit to add comprehensive support for the DICOM Digital Signature Profiles that include: “Base RSA Digital Signature Profile”, “Creator RSA Digital Signature Profile” and “Authorization RSA Digital Signature Profile”.
  • Context Groups support. The use of Coded Concepts in DICOM facilitates unambiguous communication of concepts or terms. LEADTOOLS supports all the context groups defined by the “DICOM Content Mapping Resource (DCMR)”, which is specified by PS 3.16 of the DICOM Standard.
  • DICOM Waveforms including electrocardiography (ECG), hemodynamic curve data, cardiac electrophysiology, and audio signals (WAV files).
  • Single or multi-frame images (compressed or uncompressed)
  • Largest set of hardware manufacturers supported.
  • Supports all VR's (Value Representation) in DICOM standard including “Other Float String”.
  • High-level and low-level functions for easy navigation and manipulation (insert, delete, modify) of data sets.
  • LEADTOOLS automatically adds the Item Delimitation Item, and Sequence Delimitation Item to simplify Nesting of Data Sets (VR of “SQ”).
  • Easy to manipulate ordinal positioning of Items (FFFE,E000).
  • Simplified handling of repeating groups (multiple overlays and curve data)
  • Supports Encapsulated or Native encoding of Pixel Data for Single or multi-frame compressed or uncompressed images.
  • Cookie cutter tool: Extract individual slices from a radiographic scanned film (useful for identifying each slice inside a scanned MRI or CT series).
  • MRI Brain Analysis Tool: Used to calculate the ratio between the corpus callosm (the white matter in the middle of the brain that looks like the letter X) and the brain sphere.
  • WPF Support. LEADTOOLS provides interoperation support between LEADTOOLS and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) images. Developers can harness the robust power of LEADTOOLS extensive file format support and image processing features, while taking advantage of the newest UI development features provided by WPF. LEADTOOLS includes WPF source code examples making the integration of many years of LEADTOOLS imaging expertise into the latest Microsoft WPF technology a simple task.
