This page documents how you can set up an Orthanc DICOM server and Aeskulap clients on different machines to view DICOM information stored on the Orthanc server.

Install your packages

On the server machine, install Orthanc:

sudo yum install orthanc

On the client machines, install Aeskulap

sudo yum install aeskulap

Set up Orthanc

Configure /etc/orthanc/orthanc.json

Add your Aeskulap clients under DicomModalities. For example:

       "AESKULAP" : [ "AESKULAP", "localhost", 6000 ],
       "AESKULAP1" : [ "AESKULAP1", "", "6000" ]

Start Orthanc:

 sudo systemctl start orthanc.service 
and check if it started:
 sudo systemctl status orthanc.service 

If your configuration was correct, it should be running.

Set up Aeskulap

In Aeskulap, you need to go to "Edit > Preferences > Servers" and add the Orthanc Server. This screenshot tells you how to do it: .

Open your firewall ports

This is quite important. If your ports aren't open, it won't work properly.

On the Orthanc machine, you need to open port 4242:

sudo firewall-cmd --add-ports=4242/tcp

To make this permanent, run the command again with the --permanent option. Please make sure you add this to the current zone if you're using one.

If you want to also use the http web front end, also open port 8024 using a similar command as above. Note that, to allow remote http access, you need to set "RemoteAccessAllowed" to true in the configuration file and restart the server:

sudo systemctl restart orthanc.service

Add your images and get started

You can now add your dicom images to the server. If you're in the directory where these files are stored, you can use a command like this:

storescu -aec ORTHANC 4242 *

You can also use the web frontend to upload images.

Click "Search" in Aeskulap and it'll list your images. Double click on a list item to open it up. More screenshots:
