DICOM network messages

Use Imebra to implement PACS, Modalities, DICOM viewers and other Applications that communicate via DICOM messages (DIMSE) over network associations (ACSE).

Imebra SDK can act as SCU, SCP or both and recognizes all the composite and normalized DIMSE commands.

DICOM & DICOMDIR files

Imebra SDK reads and writes DICOM and Jpeg files and supplies both high-level and raw access to the data.

Lazy loading of large datasets allows processing DICOM files with a large number of images.
