RZDCX Release

The new release of RZDCX include two new features and two important bug fixes.

Oct 12

C-STORE Response Status is not reflected in API calles
Sep 29
Oct 13
OnCommitResult is not fired on failure status
Sep 07
Oct 13
Add DCXKIN Interface for creating Key Images Notes SRs
Aug 27
Aug 30
Add DICOMDIR Creation

Creating DICOM Media has never been simpler with the new DICOMDIR.ScanAndCreate method.
This method creates a DICOMDIR file for a folder.
The DCXKIN is a new interface class for creating Key Object Selection (Key Images).
Using this interface you can add files or in-memory objects and then get the KIN object.

Item # 172 is an important bug fix. If a C-STORE command completed with no communication errors but the response status was unsuccessful, no error was propagated to the user. The fix returns a failure status (exception or HRESULT) if this happens. If the response status is success or warning then the method returns success. The warning can then be detected if the logs are on.

Item # 171 is yet another important bug fix related to storage commitment service as SCU. It turned out that the OnCommitResult event was fired only on successful commit results. This event is now fires on every commit result (N-EVENT-REPORT).

The toolkit is available online at http://www.roniza.com-a.googlepages.com/downloads

RZDCX Release

RZDCX Release is now available online at http://www.roniza.com/products/downloads.
In addition to some bug fixes, this release includes a method for DICOM Media Creator using single command.
The ScanAndCreate method added to DCXDICOMDIR enables a simple creation of DICOMDIR file for an existing folder with DICOM files. This method also have a 'strict' flag that can be used to enforce or relieve the standard rules for DICOMDIR files.
Additionally, this release includes some new test applications in C++ and C# that demonstrate the use of features added since release Among them are Modality Worklist SCU, Modality Performed Procedure Step SCU, DICOM Image Creation Example, Create DICOMDIR and a C-MOVE with callbacks example.

Known bug: Linking tables using same key field

The following problem was reported and identified ion HL7Kit Pro.
The program fails to identify a parent-child relationship between two tables where the relationship columns have the same name for example if two tables have a foreign key where the primary key column name is 'id' and the foreign key column is also called 'id'.

Workaround: rename one of the columns.

Ticket #: 146

HL7Kit Pro Example project

Following the release of HL7Kit Pro, we'll be uploading sample projects to demonstrate the functionality of this great product.

The first example, just uploaded today, shows how to use HL7Kit Pro to process an incomming patient admit message (ADT^A01 Event).

The example includes a zip file with readme instructions, a SQL script to create the example database, a mapping file and a test message.

Just follow the instructions in the readme file.
