A useful configuration for routing DICOM data into XNAT is to configure a particular DICOM SCP Receiver to route all data to a specific project – one receiver, one project. This document focuses on how to configure a DICOM SCP Receiver for this use case.
XNAT uses DICOM Object Identifiers (DOIs) to implement rules that determine mappings from DICOM attributes to XNAT project, subject, and session to facilitate the routing of uploaded DICOM data into XNAT. XNAT's DICOM SCP Receivers are configured with specific DOIs to facilitate different routing from different sources. See Connecting XNAT to DICOM Scanners and PACS and How XNAT Scans DICOM to Map to Project/Subject/Session for a general overview.
An XNAT Project is uniquely identified by its ID which is a string of characters established at the project's creation. A project's ID can be found on the project's home page. We will use "MyProject" for this example.
DICOM SCP Receivers are uniquely determined by their AE Title and port. Open the dialog to create a new Receiver: Administer > Site Administration > DICOM SCP Receivers > New DICOM SCP Receiver.
All DICOM sent to AE Title "MyProject" on port 8104 will be routed to Project "MyProject". Note that Subject and Session Routing Expressions are left blank. In this case the standard routing rules for Subject and Session will apply. Adding expressions here can provide other behavior as desired.
