Ginkgo CADx

This section explains how to connect the Ginkgo CADx viewer to an Orthanc server, both running on the local computer. First, start Orthanc without specifying a configuration file (i.e. using its default configuration). Then, open the settings pannel of Ginkgo CADx:


Write down the AET and the DICOM port of Ginkgo CADx (in this case, respectively GINKGO_001 and 11112). Then, create a new DICOM node corresponding to Orthanc by clicking on the “New...” button, which raises the following dialog box:


Complete the highlighted fields with the default parameters of Orthanc, as shown in the screenshot. Do not forget to click on the “Test connection” button to make sure the C-Echo succeeds. Stop Orthanc, create a new configuration file, and declare Gingko CADx in the DicomModalities section, given the parameters you wrote down above:

// The list of the known DICOM modalities
"DicomModalities" : {
  "ginkgo" : [ "GINKGO_001", "localhost", 11112 ]

Restart Orthanc using this newly created configuration file, and you will be able to do query/retrieve from Gingko CADx through the “PACS Q/R” menu.
