DICOM Gobbler

Import DICOM CDs to PACS

Gobbler pops-up automatically when you insert a DICOMDIR disc, asks for an MRN, and then quietly stores the contents to your local PACS.

Basic Function

Gobbler is the most efficient way to import DICOMDIR to PACS, it:

  • Lives mostly in the system tray, and shows polite little bubbles as it works.
  • Always watches for CDs, DVDs and USB sticks with DICOM files, especially those that contain DICOMDIR folders.
  • Finds the first DICOM file, determines the patient name, and prompts you for a Patient ID.
  • Slips back into the tray, and then:
    • Replaces the Patient ID of all of the images;
    • Optionally, decompresses JPEG studies to RGB for, e.g., Merge compatibility; and then
    • Attempts to send all instances to PACS
  • DICOM Gobbler also reports any failures, saving exams to a temporary folder that you can access later.

Best of all, DICOM Gobbler is unobtrusive and easy to use.  You don’t have to think about it at all unless you insert a DICOM disc.
