May 21, 2021— Laurel Bridge Software, a provider of imaging software solutions that enable health systems to orchestrate their medical imaging workflows, announces support for RESTful DICOMweb services as part of a significant software upgrade for their Compass - Routing Workflow Manager.

Support for RESTful DICOMweb services is important because it supports a significant industry trend towards cloud based medical imaging workflows that are designed around DICOMweb technology. Most existing PACS and imaging modalities do not support RESTful DICOMweb services, however, there is an increasing requirement for such devices to communicate with cloud-based applications and devices.  The now available DICOMweb support enables the integration of traditional DICOM and DICOMweb. The accelerated adoption of cloud-based archives and applications, including integration with AI algorithms and research initiatives, are driving this requirement.

This new software provides the following benefits:

  • Expands existing Compass Router capabilities
  • Eliminates the need for an additional DIMSE to DICOMweb translator
  • Improves communication amongst our entire enterprise solutions suite
  • Simplifies integration with the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Healthcare API

“We have seen RESTful services move from the periphery into the mainstream of medical imaging workflow,” said Jeff Blair, President of Laurel Bridge Software. “The trend toward web- and cloud-based services has been gradual yet steady. However, the number of new cloud-based AI algorithms and platform companies has dramatically increased the need for conversion between DICOMweb and DIMSE services.”

Additional major features include:

  • Routing support for RESTful DICOMweb services
  • Conversion between RESTful DICOMweb and DIMSE services
  • Inbound and outbound support for STOW/QIDO/WADO
  • Enhanced integration with the Lighthouse – Centralized Monitoring and Management Platform
  • Integration with cloud storage (Azure, S3, GCP)
  • Support for multiple association listeners
  • Sign on improvements (OAuth2)
