DICOM DS is software available to all ProKnow DS users. DICOM DS runs locally — not on the cloud — to receive (or “listen for”) data exported from your treatment planning systems (TPS) and other medical software. DICOM DS may then send those exported files to your ProKnow DS cloud storage and/or to local storage repositories.
DICOM DS provides storage class provider (SCP) that can run on any operating system (Windows, Linux, Mac, etc.) You are able to run different SCP listeners in parallel on the same system, to populate different repositories or to allow different configurations. The SCP configuration allows for optional, automatic anonymization of key DICOM tags before upload/store, which is a useful feature when running a trial of ProKnow DS prior to clinical usage.
The DICOM DS package also includes a manager application that allows you to monitor and manage all services from a single application.
