Removed!
use rev-5 instead
  • readOmatic: Fix a bug when reading more than a few thousands files from a disk.
  • readOmatic: Fix a problem (introduced in 2.1) with UNIX disks.

rev-2
27/Apr/2010
Removed!
use rev-5 instead
  • readOmatic: Fix a problem with Allstore disks.
  • readOmatic: only save the original path if asked for. (It used to be also saved if no sub-dir for studies and series where asked)
  • readOmatic: readOmatic: Split the output file in chunks of 32 Mb to prevent problems when writing big files.
  • DICOMatic: fix a problem with some DICOM multiframe images.

rev-1
01/Apr/2010
Removed!
use rev-5 instead
  • All modules: New license scheme. Allow for yearly licenses.
  • DICOMatic: Add 10 new variables to the rules. "PATH_0" to "PATH_9". They are the different path components of the file being converted. "PATH_0" is the drive letter, PATH_1 is the first directory...
    For example the file: "c:\temp\sub_dir\another dir\toto.ima" will have: PATH_0 = "c:", PATH_1 = temp, PATH_2 = sub_dir, PATH_3 = another dir, PATH_4 to PATH_9 will be empty.
  • DICOMatic: Fix a problem with Signa_5 images that have a "." in the 4 char ID field label.
  • DICOMatic: Fix a problem with DSR format where the Patient information tag had problems if multiple fields where empty and add Hearth rate.
  • DICOMatic: Add support for color palette. Philips DSR ultrasound files can now be converted with "PALETTE COLOR" photometric interpretation.
  • readOmatic: Add a new variable to allow the user to reduce the maximum SCSI buffer. It was 64Kb, but apparently some devices can not support that buffer size. The .ini parameter: "scsi_max_buffer" give the new buuefr size (in Kb). this value must be a power of 2 (1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 or 64). The maximum alowed is 64Kb.
  • readOmatic: fix a an error message when reading DAT tapes in SPTI.
  • readOmatic: Add support for DSS tapes (ultrasound on DLT)
  • readOmatic: Add support for UDF disk format on MOD
  • readOmatic: Add support for "Allstor" DVD (use by Siemens ACON systems)
  • readOmatic: made the Philips OSS/DSS reader more fault tolerant.
  • readOmatic: Fix a problem with Philips OSS/DSS disk having DICOM files with undefined lenght sequences.
  • Connect: add recursion in the FTP Pull option. If you have "..." as the last component of a template, the program will look in all the subdirectories.
    ex: dir_1\dir_2\... or dir_1\dir_2\...\*.ima will look in all the sub-directories rooted at dir_1\dir_2 and get all the files in the first case, all the ".ima" files in the second.
  • Connect: fix a few bugs.
  • DICOM_Watch: Add the FTP Pull option (same as Connect).
  • readObatch: Add this new "batch mode" version of readOmatic. It will read all the files in the specified device. The command line arguments are:
    --- usage: ---
    readObatch [-s *] [-i *] [-m mode] [-o dir] [-w file] [-x * *] [-y * *]
    • [-s *] SCSI Adapter num. of device to read
    • [-i *] SCSI ID num. of device to read
    • [-m mode] If mode = read, the files will be read from the device and saved to the target dir.
      mode = conv, the files will be read, converted to DICOM and saved to the target dir.
      mode = push, the files will be read, converted and pushed to the DICOM network.
    • [-o dir] Root directory for the extracted data (def: c:\\temp) (if spaces are used in the name, protect with quotes)
    • [-w file] All messages are directed to this file (def: readObatch.dat) (if spaces are used in the name, protect with quotes)
    • [-x * *] X position & dimention of window
    • [-y * *] Y position & dimention of window
    Note: without arguments, the program will list the SCSI devices
    ex: readObatch -s 1 -i 3 -m conv -o "c:\temp\"
    will read all the files from the SCSI device (1,3), convert the files to DICOM and save them in c:\temp\. Note the other parameters defined in readOmatic.ini will also be used to control this process.
