Osimis for software editors

Software editors

Software editors providing solutions in which they need to enable storage, visualisation and collaboration around DICOM files mainly proprietary solutions to choose form. These don’t enable them to integrate it with their own code. Osimis provides implementation services and custom development around Orthanc.


Orthanc aims at providing a simple, yet powerful standalone DICOM server. It is designed to improve the DICOM flows in hospitals and to support research about the automated analysis of medical images. Orthanc lets its users focus on the content of the DICOM files, hiding the complexity of the DICOM format and of the DICOM protocol.


Orthanc can turn any computer running Windows, Linux or OS X into a DICOM store (in other words, a mini-PACS system). Its architecture is lightweight and standalone, 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 JSONfile format. Furthermore, standard PNG images can be generated on-the-fly from the DICOM instances by Orthanc.


Orthanc also features a plugin mechanism to add new modules that extends the core capabilities of its REST API. A Web viewer, a PostgreSQL database back-end, and a reference implementation of DICOMweb are currently freely available as plugins.
