How to configure the DICOM Q/R plugin from the web interface.

This is to configure the DICOM Q/R plugin from the web interface.

There are three methods to configure the DICOM Q/R in ResolutionMD:

  1. Using the Configurator (recommended)
  2. From the Advanced Configuration option
  3. Manually using the a text editor from the command line.  NOTE: For ResolutionMD 3.1 and older, only methods 1 and 3 are available.

Method 1: Using the DICOM Q/R configurator

Procedure

  1. Log in to the ResolutionMD server using Administrator credentials

  2. From the Dashboard, under the Settings heading select the DICOM option.



  3. From this page you can edit the existing DICOM connections or add new ones.  In this example we edit the devominator DICOM connection.  Select the Edit option from the Actions pulldown menu.



  4. Edit the Connection Name if desired and the Imaging Server Information



  5. Edit the DICOM information



  6. Click on the Save button to save the configured settings.

  7. It may be necessary to log out and log back in for the configuration settings to take effect.

Method 2: Using the Advanced Configuration Page

Procedure

  1. Log in to the ResolutionMD  server using Administrator credentials
  2. From the Dashboard, under the Settings heading select the Advanced option



  3. Select the appropriate .properties file to be edited and click on the edit button.  In this example we are editing the dicomqr files.



  4. Edit the AE Title, IP Address/Hostname and Port for both the dicomqr.query.address and dicomqr.storage.address. 

  5. Click on the save button.
  6. Any editing of the plugin files will generate a warning box, shown below.



  7. Click on the Reload All Plugins button to save the new plugin configuration.



  8. Once all of the Plugins have been reloaded you'll receive a message as shown below.



  9. It may be necessary to log out and log back in for the configuration settings to take effect.

Method 3: Using a text editor from the command line

Procedure

  1. Log into the server using admin credentials.
  2. Navigate to the conf folder:
    • RHEL:  /opt/CSI/PureWeb/Server/conf
    • Windows: C:\CSI\PureWeb\Server\conf
  3. Use a text editor to edit the appropriate DICOM Q/R file, in this example we use vim to edit the dicomqr-plugin.properties file.  An example command: vim dicomqr-plugin.properties

    An example dicomqr-plugin.properties file
    ################################################################################
    ### Dicom Q/R config
    ################################################################################

    # The address of the Storage SCP in the form of <ae-title>@<host>:<port>
    # The plugin will issue C-FIND and C-MOVE requests to this address.
    dicomqr.query.address=ResolutionMD@localhost:11112

    # The address of the Storage SCU in the form of <ae-title>@<host>:<port>
    # This is the address that the plugin will listen for storage requests
    # resulting from a C-MOVE.
    dicomqr.storage.address=PureWeb@0.0.0.0:11114
  4. Edit the AE Title, IP Address/Hostname and Port for both the dicomqr.query.address and dicomqr.storage.address.
  5. Save the edits and close the file.

Common Problems

  • No configured Back Association. The Server AE Title, Server IP Addess/Hostname, and Port must be added to the back associations of the DICOM PACS.
