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
Add your Aeskulap clients under
DicomModalities. For example:
"AESKULAP" : [ "AESKULAP", "localhost", "6000" ], "AESKULAP1" : [ "AESKULAP1", "10.0.1.68", "6000" ]
sudo systemctl start orthanc.serviceand 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: https://ankursinha.fedorapeople.org/aeskulap_orthanc/aeskulap-orthanc.png .
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
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
true in the configuration file and restart the server:
On the Aeskulap machines, you need to open 6600 which is the default port:
sudo firewall-cmd --add-ports=6600/tcp
To make these permanent, run the commands again with the
--permanent option. Please make sure you add these to the current
zones if you're using one.
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 127.0.0.1 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:
