Utilities for Admins, Integrators and Developers

PowerTools is a suite of DICOM and HL7 tools designed for the development, testing, troubleshooting, or debugging of applications that use DICOM and HL7 communications. With PowerTools, you can view, repair, or create DICOM data sets and support, manage and diagnose medical imaging communications.

Add PowerTools to your toolbox

  • Edit DICOM files
  • Generate studies
  • Create DICOMDIRs
  • Store Client & Server
  • Verification Tools
  • Modality Worklist Tools
  • DICOM to PDF
  • HL7 Sender & Receiver
  • Much more…

PowerTools tackles just about any DICOM challenge

PACS administrators, integration engineers, system testers, software developers, field service technicians, and many others who work with DICOM and HL7 rely on PowerTools. The suite includes GUI and console versions that can run stand-alone or scripted to support your development, management and problem-solving needs.


The standalone PowerTools programs fill a wide variety of needs and functionality, suitable for DICOM PACS administrators and software developers. The PowerTools suite includes easy-to-use DICOM server (SCP) and client (SCU) applications for DICOM communications, and applications for viewing, changing, creating, converting, or fixing DICOM data sets, working with HL7 communications and generating integrated dictation and translation system (e.g., PowerScribe® 360 or M*Modal Fluency™) mapping files that integrate seamlessly with Compass. Most applications come in GUI and console versions, so the PowerTools utilities run independently or scripted in a variety of development and troubleshooting scenarios.

What do you get?

PowerTools includes a comprehensive and continuously improved suite of tools:

DICOM Utilities
DICOM File Editor
  • View, edit, and modify the contents of a DICOM dataset/file
  • Visualize the patient, study, series and instance hierarchy
  • View DICOM images for testing and development purposes; supports drag-and-drop
  • Extract image and header data to JPEG, PNG, BMP, GIF, TIFF, Animated GIF, plain text and more
  • View and save encapsulated PDF elements, if present
  • Apply filters (tag morphing) to a DICOM dataset
  • View dataset/file contents in ASCII and in hexadecimal formats
  • Search the contents of a DICOM dataset; synchronize viewing of header tags between datasets
  • Create DICOM media from a directory of DICOM datasets on disk
DICOM Filter
  • Create, store, or retrieve complex user-defined filters for modifying DICOM datasets
  • Apply filters to one or more studies, series, or datasets in an automated way
  • Anonymize (de-identify) DICOM datasets, series, or studies. Conforms to the DICOM Attribute Confidentiality Profile (DICOM PS 3.15: Appendix E, formerly Supplement 142)
  • Apply pixel blanking or blinding to anonymize PHI burned into images
Dictionary Finder
  • Look up information from the DICOM data dictionary
  • See values and meanings for tags, elements, and UIDs
Study Generator
  • Generate studies automatically; a configurable delay may be added between generated studies
  • Send studies, series, and images to the console, file system, or a DICOM store server, using single or multiple associations, sequentially or in parallel, with your preferred transfer syntax
  • Customize images with study information, file size, background image, and burned-in overlay
  • Create and store configuration profiles for flexible and efficient testing
  • Choose one or more PDF files and enter header data from a configurable, pre-populated template
  • Save as a DICOM Encapsulated PDF dataset to the file system or store directly to a DICOM store server
DICOM Indexer
  • Categorize your repository of test data
  • Create a spreadsheet of selected DICOM elements found in datasets saved in the filesystem
Structured Report Extractor
  • Extract tag data from DICOM Structured Reports (SRs)
  • Generate dictation mapping info for the Compass router, e.g., m*Modal, PowerScribe 360 (PS360)
  • View and verify extracted SR data
  • Confirm mapping names and units; summarize auto-text data generated
App Launcher
  • Convenient application for launching PowerTools GUI utility programs
DICOM Clients and Servers
Modality Worklist Client and Server
  • Connect to a modality worklist SCP
  • Provide a modality worklist SCP for a directory on disk
Query Client and Server
  • Query a query SCP (or PACS) for DICOM images, and move DICOM images from the server to another location
  • Provide a query SCP for a directory on disk
Store Client and Server
  • C-Store DICOM images from disk to a store SCP
  • Receive C-Store DICOM images from a store SCU
Verification Client and Server
  • Send C-Echo requests as a Verification SCU
  • Receive and reply to C-Echo requests as a Verification SCP
HL7 Client and Server
HL7 Sender
  • Produce and send HL7 messages using configurable templates
  • Log HL7 communication traffic
  • Wait for ACKs
  • Communicate via SSL
  • Apply mapping rules to generate dynamic content in messages with customized values
HL7 Receiver
  • Receive and display HL7 messages
  • Log HL7 communication traffic
  • Send ACKs and simulate communication delays
  • Communicate via SSL
