DicomObjects is a .NET and ActiveX/COM DICOM toolkit library (API / SDK) which is designed to allow programmers to incorporate DICOM easily into their programming projects. It is available as either an "OCX" for use in an ActiveX/COM environment, or as a native .NET DLL.

Our DICOM code library DicomObjects is designed to make DICOM development very simple, hiding most of the complexities within the toolkit, giving you a simple high-level API / SDK which can be used for just about any DICOM application. Whether the program is a simple viewer, an associated application such as a worklist server, or a full-scale PACS, all have been accomplished many times with DicomObjects. Examples for these and many more applications are included in the free download.

The support staff here at Medical Connections Ltd are accustomed to helping those "new" to DICOM, and we pride ourselves on getting new developers introduced to the subtleties of DICOM.


DicomObjects DICOM toolkit can be used with a variety of development tools, such as Visual Studio (C#, Visual Basic, ASP, etc), Delphi, Access, Mono or even VBScript within a web page.

Virtually any type of application concerned with medical imaging can easily be written using DicomObjects, but here are some suggestions:

  • Viewing applications
  • Teleradiology
  • Secondary capture stations
  • Image archiving and storage
  • Web-based image retrieval
  • Quality assurance
  • Ad-hoc customised interfaces
  • Image import and export filters
  • "On-the-fly" data manipulation and correction
  • Intelligent Image routing
