pynetdicom2 is a pure python package implementing the DICOM network protocol. This library is a fork/rewrite of the original pynetdicom that can be found here http://pynetdicom.googlecode.com. Library is not backwards compatible with original pynetdicom.
Library is build on top of pydicom, which is used for reading/writing DICOM datasets. Pynetdicom2 provides implementation for commonly used DICOM services such as Storage, Query/Retrieve, Verification, etc.
DICOM is a standard (http://medical.nema.org) for communicating medical images and related information such as reports and radiotherapy objects.
- Documentation should really be improved (proper tutorial, some examples)
- Better test suit (some necessary unit tests and integration tests are missing)
- Stability and performance improvements. In its current state library performs 'good enough', but certainly there is still room for improvement.
