Project Description

Creating a cohort or tagging DICOM images can be very time-consuming. In this project, we are working on solutions to facilitate the process.


  1. Improving the Gallery view (see video above) in Kaapana in cooperation with other participants
  2. Interacting native DICOM image support into the annotation tool Doccano
  3. Discussion: DICOM Dashboard Setup (somewhat) related to this: in IDC we have been using Google DataStudio / Looker, and Apache Superset (to a lesser degree) - can discuss

Approach and Plan

The Gallery View is part of the kaapana open source toolkit and is based on open source tools such as OpenSearch, dcm4chee, dcmjs and Cornerstone.js. So far, the Gallery View is a proof of concept for fast viewing and tagging of DICOM Images.

We are actively looking for new use cases, in which the functionality of the Gallery View can be either applied or extended.

Some use-cases we have in mind:

If you have any ideas in mind, please feel free to contact us (-> stefan.denner@dkfz-heidelberg.de).
