I'm trying to figure out a way to get our dicom machines to print to a paper printer. As such, I'd like to setup a print server that the modalities can connect to as a dicom device, which can then convert the images to a format suitable for printing on a paper printer. This is all in windows.
From what I can see, it looks like conquest can be used for this?
I'm not sure where to start, so if anyone can help me with the following issues, and point me in the right direction that would be great!
1) Whats the best way to test a dicom print server like this? Install a free pacs system and try and print from that? (any suggestions?)
2) If I wanted to adjust the images - like add a header - where in the code is the best place to do that?
3) How do I configure ConQuest to behave like a dicom printer?
Any help, even basic is greatly appreciated, thanks!
