How to set up 3D Slicer to receive DICOM images from our PACS?

Operating system: Windows 10
Slicer version: 4.10.2
Expected behavior: PACS images flow into Slicer application
Actual behavior: N/A

My name is Mario and I’m a Senior Analyst for our hospital’s PACS system. I haven’t used or supported 3D Slicer before but I have a user who needs to use the application.

I was wondering if you could point me to some documentation or provide a walk through on how to set up the Slicer application to receive images from our PACS? If it helps, we’re currently using Syngo Plaza and I’ve already created a DICOM node for the workstation that has Slicer installed on it.

Thank you.



There have been several posts about this, so the answers should be in there. Warning in advance that Slicer query implementation is not the most efficient, but it should work.

This post from yesterday has the key info about AETITLE and port: Configuration of the 3D Slicer DICOM Listener to Hospital CT

Hello Steve,

Thank you so much for this information! I really appreciate it.
