The Conquest DICOM software was written by Marcel van Herk and Lambert Zijp at the Netherlands Cancer Institute.We have decided to provide our extended DICOM software also to the public domain. It is now maintained by Marcel van Herk at the University of Manchester.
Please check our FORUM (kindly hosted by the K-PACS team).
Some possible applications of the Conquest DICOM software are:
DICOM training and testing
Demonstration and research image archives
Image format conversion from a scanner with DICOM network access
DICOM image viewing and slide making
DICOM image selection, (limited) editing, and splitting and merging of series
Advanced scriptable image modification, filtering, forwarding and conversion
DICOM caching and archive merging
DICOM web access for viewing and data management (scriptable)
Connects to Lua IDE for all sorts of DICOM manipulation
The server supports a wide range of databases with ODBC (Windows) or without (Windows/Linux), including DbaseIII, MySQL, Postgres and SqLite.
Fast error free and transparent compression (>2x) of image data on disk with NKI private, JPEG or JPEG2000 compression.
A database browser and slice viewer integrated in the PACS system with options for: viewing DICOM header, creating BMP files (ideal for slides), sending selected images, printing, database fix tools such as changing patient IDs, deleting and anonymizing studies and series, and splitting and merging series. Use drag and drop to load ZIP, DICOM and HL7 files.
A simple query/move user interface for diagnostic purposes, to improve your knowledge of DICOM, and to grab missing data from another server.
Elementary DICOM print server and client - prints to the default printer.
JPEG, JPEG2000 compression and decompression (thanks to Bruce Barton) and RLE decompression supported.
Flexible configuration of JPEG and NKI private compression with optional (de)compression of incoming, dropped, transmitted and archived files.
A simple DICOM Modality Worklist implementation with HL7 import with configurable translation.
A CGI WEB interface with several possible viewers (also on the Linux version with does not have a GUI).
The server can act as an advanced (Lua) scriptable DICOM image forwarder, processor and/or DICOM image cache.
The server integrates a small web client that also acts as a viewer.
The server and its webserver operation can be scripted in Lua for any type of processing and extension.
New release, unified for Windows/Linux:
[Version 1.5.0 released (15 March 2020), Open source release on Github; Implements a small built-in web server, web page and server command attachfile; multi-threaded move and forwards, more scripting features and servercommands, a Lua console using IUP, better Linux options, scriptable dicom echo, etc.] [Version 1.5.0a released (20 June 2020), Fixes in compression and rare data corruption under Linux; web tool extensions] [Version 1.5.0b released (2 November 2020), Web with login; some bug fixes and faster anonymisation]
