Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) is the industry standard that is designed for medical imaging filed, which provides various diagnostic and therapeutic equipment manufacturers a way to conduct digital communication. Thus, DICOM is often used for medical information processing, storage, printing, recording and transmission.
This VB.NET DICOM image reader control SDK is a mature & high-quality .NET solution. Using this VB.NET DICOM image viewer library toolkit, developers can not only easily and quickly view and extract the medical information that is stored in the DICOM file but also read the patient information that are encoded in the metadata of source DICOM file.
In order to help you have a better and deeper understanding of this VB.NET image viewer SDK, we divide this online tutorial page for how to read & decode DICOM image file using VB.NET code programmatically into following four aspects.
  • What are the key features of this VB.NET DICOM file viewer library SDK
  • Brief instructions on those VB.NET DICOM image reader control SDK dlls
  • Detailed VB.NET programming code on how to decode & interpret DICOM file
  • Frequently asked questions on RasterEdge VB.NET DICOM image viewer assembly SDK
VB.NET DICOM Image Viewer SDK Features
  • Advanced VB.NET DICOM image reader control SDK that is completely developed in .NET Framework application
  • Offer easy to use API for VB.NET developers to decode & interpret DICOM image file
  • Metadata that is encoded in source DICOM file can be also read by this VB.NET DICOM image reader control SDK
  • Allow developers to decode standard DICOM image file to different colorspaces using VB.NET programming code
  • High-quality VB.NET DICOM image viewer control SDK with reasonable developing licenses
VB.NET DICOM Image Viewer SDK DLLs
There are two compact dlls that are included in this VB.NET DICOM image viewer SDK, which are RasterEdge.Imaging.Basic.dll and RasterEdge.Imaging.DICOM.dll. The former library offers API for developers to load source DICOM file from PC local files or web server. The later assembly is designed to help VB.NET programmers open, decode, read & process DICOM file in .NET developing applications.
Besides this VB.NET DICOM reading control assembly, RasterEdge .NET Imaging SDK also offer other VB.NET document image reading SDKs, like VB.NET PDF document reader SDK, VB.NET Word document decoding & reading SDK and VB.NET TIFF image file reading & interpreting library SDK.
VB.NET Demo Code to Read DICOM File
In this part, we offer you a detailed VB.NET programming example, which you can use to read & decode all the medical information from source DICOM file.
Public Shared FolderName As String = "c:/"
Private Sub button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)

string fileName = FolderName + "Sample..dicom"

REImage reImage = (REImage)REFile.OpenDocumentFile(fileName, new DICMDecoder()).GetPage(0).ToImage()

DicomDecoder : ImageDecoder, IDisposable


End Sub
