Import DICOM CDs & DVDs to PACS

What is a DICOM Gobbler?

  • It lives in the system tray;
  • It watches for DICOM CDs and DVDs;
  • It offers to import all DICOM instances to your local PACS;
  • It hides back into the tray as it imports; and
  • It’s ready to be installed!

We are happy to announce that DICOM Gobbler is now ready for general use.

DICOM Gobbler was born thanks to a request from Bonita Community Health Center — one of our oldest customers. John at Bonita asked for a DICOM import utility that is unobtrusive, easy-to-use, and can decompress proprietary formats, like JPEG2000, to make them compatible with their older Merge PACS viewer.

An alpha version of Gobbler was released in mid-2016, and since then it has already been deployed in five continents, including at a cardiology centre in Brazil, a hospital in Israel, and dental x-ray facilities in Australia and China.

DICOM Gobbler Free Alpha Release

We’ve been working with a long-time client to help them import DICOM CDs to PACS. Many of the offerings on the market are either complicated, expensive, or both.

So, we created a new tool — we’re calling it DICOM Gobbler, for now. It’s a work-in-progress, but it’s more than sufficient to import many DICOM CD, DVD and USB to PACS.

Give it a try and let us know what features you would like to see!
