Involved Projects and Packages

The Orthanc project provides three official tools to support DICOM for whole-slide microscopic imaging (WSI):
- A so-called “DICOM-izer” command-line tool that converts whole-slide images to DICOM series, following Supplement 145.
- A plugin that extends Orthanc with a Web viewer of whole-slide images for digital pathology.
- Another command-line tool that converts a DICOM series stored inside Orthanc, to a standard hierarchical TIFF image.


Various pieces of software that should run under

Orthanc aims at providing a simple, yet powerful standalone DICOM server. Orthanc can turn any computer running Windows or Linux into a DICOM store (in other words, a mini-PACS system). Its architecture is lightweight, meaning that no complex database administration is required, nor the installation of third-party dependencies.

What makes Orthanc unique is the fact that it provides a RESTful API. Thanks to this major feature, it is possible to drive Orthanc from any computer language. The DICOM tags of the stored medical images can be downloaded in the JSON file format. Furthermore, standard PNG images can be generated on-the-fly from the DICOM instances by Orthanc.

Orthanc lets its users focus on the content of the DICOM files, hiding the complexity of the DICOM format and of the DICOM protocol.

HylaFAX is an enterprise-class system for sending and receiving facsimiles
as well as for sending alpha-numeric pages.


redir is a port redirector, used to forward incoming connections
to somewhere else. by far the cleanest piece of code here, because
someone else liked it enough to fix it.


ProjectLibre is a project manager which is compatible with Microsoft
Project 2003, 2007 and 2010 files. It has Gantt charts, PERT charts,
