DBlni Introduction

The DBlni is a PACs (Picture Archiving and Communication System) developed at the Neuroimaging Laboratory to organize and achieve DICOM images. The software is divided into two separate standalone interfaces, the DBlniAdd, tool to add new DICOM, NIfTi or SPAR/SDAT files to the server repository and metadata to the Database. The DBlniAdd reads the DICOM metadata from all files in a source folder, organizing with and user-friendly filename pattern while achieving several relevant image information. The second interface is the client software, the DBlniFinder. This interface enables the access to the Database with a powerful image search engine, the visualisation of a selected file (DBlni Viewer) or even the direct download to a defined local folder.

Until now, the software is compatible with Windows and MAC OSs and have not paid dependencies.

  • Matlab MRC (Included in the packing)

The DBlni has currently the following functionalities:


DBlni Finder:

  • Smart Images search engine with 10 protocol/image filters

  • Enable the creation of work groups of images for further download or visualisation.

  • Enable the visualisation of 2D, 3D, or 4D DICOM, NIfTI and SPAR/SDAT files,

  • Enable the direct downloading of images from the server to the local machine.

  • The interface has three sub-tools:

    1. DICOM Renamer and Anonymizer

    2. Uncompress tool

    3. DICOM to NIfTI Converter (based on Chris Rhoerden's dcm2niix)


DBlni Add

  • Creates the database and the image repository

  • Include new images to the database and repository from a source DICOM/NIfTI/SPAR-SDAT folder (external or internal disks or even network sources.

  • The DICOM files are renamed to user-friendly filename format, and all data are compacted to increased storage capabilities.

  • The images are stored in the repository with and smart and intuitive folder tree, aiming to a maximum speed to find and download. This is also relevant for backup or even manual access or managing of the data.
