Import DICOM CDs to PACS
Gobbler pops-up automatically when you insert a DICOMDIR disc, asks for an MRN, and then quietly stores the contents to your local PACS.
Gobbler is the most efficient way to import DICOMDIR to PACS, it:
- Lives mostly in the system tray, and shows polite little bubbles as it works.
- Always watches for CDs, DVDs and USB sticks with DICOM files, especially those that contain DICOMDIR folders.
- Finds the first DICOM file, determines the patient name, and prompts you for a Patient ID.
- Slips back into the tray, and then:
- Replaces the Patient ID of all of the images;
- Optionally, decompresses JPEG studies to RGB for, e.g., Merge compatibility; and then
- Attempts to send all instances to PACS
- DICOM Gobbler also reports any failures, saving exams to a temporary folder that you can access later.
Best of all, DICOM Gobbler is unobtrusive and easy to use. You don’t have to think about it at all unless you insert a DICOM disc.
- Windows 7 or higher
- Microsoft .NET 4.0 Client Profile (downloaded automatically during installation)
- A DICOM 3.0 compliant PACS
- A CD/DVD tray or USB port
- Enough hard drive space for one drive’s worth of instances, so, typically less than around ~1 GB.
