DICOM is an international standard used by medical imaging devices such as CAT scans and MRIs. This plug-in provides the ability to read information stored within a DICOM compliant file including all images and bring that information directly into FileMaker.


The following features are provided:

  • Retrieve or set any of the more than 2000 tags from a DICOM file, where a tag is a piece of information relating to the patient, the equipment or image related information
  • Import monochrome and colour images from a DICOM file into a container. A DICOM file can contain multiple frames and a frame number can be specified
  • Save a frame from a DICOM file to a JPEG file
  • The standard Open and Save Dialog boxes for selecting a file

If you find any problems with the plug-in please email me at tony@kargas.net and i will put it on the to-do list
