Command Line Interface
The UNIX tar archive (.tgz) distribution of DicomBrowser includes command-line tools for scriptable DICOM workflow. To use the command-line tools, download the .tgz, extract the archive file, and add the
DicomBrowser-1.5.2/bin/ directory to your shell command path.
The bin/ directory contains three scripts: DicomBrowser starts the GUI application; DicomRemap applies an anonymization script to a set of DICOM files and either saves the modified files to disk or sends them to a C-STORE SCP; DicomSummarize builds a CSV-formatted summary of DICOM files (and is somewhat complicated; look here for details).
To see minimal documentation for each script, run it with the -h option.
Applying an anonymization script
anon.das to the contents of a directory
source, and saving the results to a new directory
DicomRemap -d anon.das -o /path/to/dest/ source/
Applying the same anonymization script, then sending the results to a DICOM C-STORE SCP on host server.org, port 104, AE Title “RECEIVER”, using client (SCU) AE title “my_ae”:
DicomRemap -d anon.das -o dicom://firstname.lastname@example.org:104/RECEIVER source/
