Bug#689041: RFS: orthanc/0.2.1-3 [ITP] -- Lightweight, RESTful DICOM server for healthcare and medical research
Have you thought of maintaining your package within the debian-med
umbrella org ?
Just back from vacation I read your conversation about orthanc
packaging. Besides the obvious helpful technical hints I would like to
come back to the initial hint from Mathieu to join the Debian Med team.
I have just uploaded the source code for the Debian packaging of Orthanc
 to the Subversion repository of the Debian Med project .
I have not been able to append Orthanc to the "imaging" task of the
debian-med Blends repository , presumably because of user
restrictions. Here is a tentative description for Orthanc in Debian Med
Responsible: Sebastien Jodogne <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Pkg-Description: RESTful DICOM server for healthcare and medical research
Orthanc aims at providing a simple, yet powerful standalone DICOM
server. Orthanc can turn any computer running Windows or Linux into a
DICOM store (in other words, a mini-PACS system). Its architecture is
lightweight, meaning that no complex database administration is
required, nor the installation of third-party dependencies.
What makes Orthanc unique is the fact that it provides a RESTful
API. Thanks to this major feature, it is possible to drive Orthanc
from any computer language. The DICOM tags of the stored medical
images can be downloaded in the JSON file format. Furthermore,
standard PNG images can be generated on-the-fly from the DICOM
instances by Orthanc.
Orthanc lets its users focus on the content of the DICOM files,
hiding the complexity of the DICOM format and of the DICOM protocol.
Could someone explain how I could further improve the package? I thank
you much in advance!
