DICOM Forward provides fault tolerant forwarding of studies via a DICOM connection to a remote computer across an occasionally unreliable data connection. DICOM Forward runs as a service on the Windows computer.
DICOM Forward provides a DICOM Storage Service Class Provider at the forwarding machine to receive images from DICOM modalities via a DICOM connection. Images received from the modalities are stored in a cache folder for forwarding.
Images are sent via the DICOM protocol to the receiving computer, using multiple transfer protocols, including secure DICOM protocol. A failover receiving computer can be configured in case the main receiving computer stops accepting images.
