Name        : orthanc
Product     : Fedora 21
Version     : 0.8.6
Release     : 1.fc21
URL         : https://code.google.com/p/orthanc/
Summary     : RESTful DICOM server for healthcare and medical research
Description :
Orthanc aims at providing a simple, yet powerful standalone DICOM
server. Orthanc can turn any computer running Windows or Linux into a
DICOM store (in other words, a mini-PACS system). Its architecture is
lightweight, meaning that no complex database administration is
required, nor the installation of third-party dependencies.

What makes Orthanc unique is the fact that it provides a RESTful
API. Thanks to this major feature, it is possible to drive Orthanc
from any computer language. The DICOM tags of the stored medical
images can be downloaded in the JSON file format. Furthermore,
standard PNG images can be generated on-the-fly from the DICOM
instances by Orthanc.

Orthanc lets its users focus on the content of the DICOM files,
hiding the complexity of the DICOM format and of the DICOM protocol.

Update Information:

This version of orthanc introduces initial supports of plugins such as the PostgreSQL backend. This is a major feature that allows Orthanc to be used in a medium/large hospital setting.
There are no ABI/API changes nor need to upgrade the db schema.
