DICOM server connection


Laszlo Balkay


This script connects to a DICOM server and transfer the a dicom series to the MATLAB workspace

function dcmserver_localtest
% function dcmserver_localtest
% Matlab library function for "dcmserver_connection.m" (see the related help).  
% This function tests the local dcm server (dcmtk) basic functionality using a 
% predefined calling AET ("MatlabTest") and called AET ("MATLAB") (defined in the "dcmqrscp.cfg"). 
% If the result would be the following (or similar):
%   Requesting Association
%   Association Accepted (Max Send PDV: 16372)
%   Echo [1], Complete [Status: Success]
%   Releasing Association
% then the local dcm server (starting by "dcmqrscp.exe") is already working locally.   
% For moving dcm file from another dcmserver you have to appropriately setup the AETs 
% and the calling hostnames in the "dcmqrscp.cfg" file. See the "dcmqrscp.cfg" 
% file and the "dcmqrscp_officialexample.cfg" for more details.
