Orthanc for digital pathology
Last Saturday, the Orthanc project released initial support of DICOM for
whole-slide microscopic imaging (digital pathology) . This
implementation tries and follows Supplement 145 .
The implementation notably provides a command-line tool to convert
whole-slide images to DICOM, possibly using OpenSlide to decode
proprietary file formats. It also provides a Web viewer of such possibly
multi-gigapixel DICOM images, taking advantage of OpenLayers.
I have just packaged this framework for Debian Sid. The package is
already uploaded to the Subversion repository of Debian Med . I think
it is reasonably lintian-proof.
Andreas, would it be possible for you to give a look at the package, and
possibly upload it to the NEW queue if it looks OK to you? I thank you
much in advance!
PS: It would perhaps be a good idea to also migrate the package to git,
as there are some DFSG modifications wrt. the upstream tarball.
