Source Code

The code is written in C# .NET Framework v4.5.2, it can be built using Visual Studio 2017 and run on Windows machine or Azure WebApp (PaaS).

You can download the source code from the GitHub repository on: github-ico.ico

Running the code

  1. You will need Visual Studio 2017/2015 (can be downloaded for free here).

  2. Open the solution file DICOMcloud.sln on the root directory.

  3. If not already selected as the StartUp Project, right click on the “DICOMcloud.Wado.WebApi” project and select “Set as startup project”

  4. Run the solution by pressing F5.

Once you run the project:

  • The DICOMweb server will run on https://localhost:44301/

  • The default settings will attach an empty database to your local SQL DB server installed with Visual Studio (LocalDb)\MSSQLLocalDB

  • The images will be written to a directory under the “App_Data” folder.

You can change these settings from the web.config by updating the two values under the appSettings section:

 <add key="app:PacsStorageConnection" value="|DataDirectory|\App_Data\Storage\ds" />
 <add key="app:PacsDataArchieve" value="Data Source=(LocalDb)\MSSQLLocalDB;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\DB\DICOMcloud.mdf;Initial Catalog=DICOMcloud;Integrated Security=True" />  


The DICOMcloud project utilizes the opensource fo-dicom DICOM library for operations on the DICOM datasets, such as reading and writing elements, compress/decompress the DICOM images, anonymization feature and many others.
