Test PACS System

DCMTK provides a utility called dcmqrdb (formerly imagectn). It is fairly straightforward to configure.

Command line

dcmqrscp --config config.txt

Configuration file (config.txt), see dcmqrcnf.txt for more details. Edit the HostTable and the AETable. Connections to "practical" in the example below will be placed in the directory /path/to/archive/Archive. "aware" is the only AE that is allowed to put data in this PACS system.

 # Global section
 NetworkType	=	"tcp"
 NetworkTCPPort	=	4006
 MaxPDUSize	=	8192
 MaxAssociations	=	20
 Display		=	"yes"
 # Allowed hosts
 # Make sure there are no spaces between the ()'s!!!!
 HostTable BEGIN
 aware = (aware,aware,4006)
 HostTable END
 # Vender table ( Ignored )

 # Application Entry Table
