Dear Debian Med contributors,
I would like to bring to your attention the Orthanc software, which is
currently developed at the CHU of Liège (Belgium). As previously pointed
out by Mathieu Malaterre in this mailing list, I am feeling that this
project could be of interest to the Debian Med project.
In a nutshell, Orthanc is a lightweight service that can easily turn any
Linux box into a standalone DICOM Store without complex administrative
task. The content of the DICOM Store is accessible through a Web-based
GUI. The content of Orthanc is also accessible through a RESTful API,
which allows easy DICOM scripting from most computer languages. Orthanc
is built upon the networking facilities of DCMTK.
The homepage of Orthanc can be found at the following URL:
Perhaps Orthanc would be an interesting candidate for inclusion into the
Debian Med Imaging packages:
A Debian package has already been prepared at the following location and
is subject to the Debian RFS #689041:
I hope you will find this information useful and I will be pleased to
answer any question about Orthanc.
