Creating and managing DICOM stores

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

This page explains how to create, edit, view, list, and delete Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) stores.

DICOM stores hold DICOM instances. You can add and manage DICOM instances in a DICOM store using the DICOMweb implementation in the Cloud Healthcare API, or you can import and export DICOM instances using Google Cloud services.

For more information on how the Cloud Healthcare API conforms to the DICOM standard, see the DICOM conformance statement.

Creating a DICOM store

Before you can create a DICOM store, you need to create a dataset.

The following samples show how to create a DICOM store:

Console

To create a DICOM store:

  1. In the Google Cloud console, go to the Datasets page.

    Go to the Datasets page

  2. Select the dataset where you want to create a DICOM store.
  3. Click Create Data Store.
  4. Select DICOM as the data store type.
  5. Enter a name of your choice that's unique in your dataset. If the name is not unique, the data store creation fails.
  6. Click Next.
  7. If you want to configure a Pub/Sub topic for the data store, click Receive Cloud Pub/Sub notifications and select the topic name. When specifying a Pub/Sub topic, enter the qualified URI to the topic, as shown in the following sample:
    projects/PROJECT_ID/topics/PUBSUB_TOPIC
    
  8. Click Next.
  9. To add one or more labels to the store, click Add Labels to organize your data stores and enter the key/value label. For more information on resource labels, see Using resource labels.
  10. Click Create.

The new data store appears in the list.

gcloud

To create a DICOM store, run the gcloud healthcare dicom-stores create command.

Before using any of the command data below, make the following replacements:

  • LOCATION: the dataset location
  • DATASET_ID: the DICOM store's parent dataset
  • DICOM_STORE_ID: an identifier for the DICOM store. The DICOM store ID must have the following:
    • A unique ID in its dataset
    • A Unicode string of 1-256 characters consisting of the following:
      • Numbers
      • Letters
      • Underscores
      • Dashes
      • Periods

Execute the following command:

Linux, macOS, or Cloud Shell

gcloud healthcare dicom-stores create DICOM_STORE_ID \
  --dataset=DATASET_ID \
  --location=LOCATION

Windows (PowerShell)

gcloud healthcare dicom-stores create DICOM_STORE_ID `
  --dataset=DATASET_ID `
  --location=LOCATION

Windows (cmd.exe)

gcloud healthcare dicom-stores create DICOM_STORE_ID ^
  --dataset=DATASET_ID ^
  --location=LOCATION

You should receive a response similar to the following:

Response

Editing a DICOM store

The following samples show how to make the following changes to a DICOM store:

  • Edit the Pub/Sub topic to which the Cloud Healthcare API sends notifications of DICOM store changes.
  • Edit the labels. Labels are key-value pairs that help you organize your Google Cloud resources.
When specifying a Pub/Sub topic, enter the qualified URI to the topic, as shown in the following sample:
projects/PROJECT_ID/topics/PUBSUB_TOPIC
For notifications to work, you must grant additional permissions to the Cloud Healthcare Service Agent service account. For more information, see DICOM, FHIR, and HL7v2 store Pub/Sub permissions.

Console

To edit a DICOM store, complete the following steps:

  1. In the Google Cloud console, go to the Datasets page.

    Go to the Datasets page

  2. Select the dataset containing the DICOM store you want to edit.
  3. In the Data stores list, click the data store you want to edit.
  4. If you want to configure a Pub/Sub topic for the data store, select the topic name from Select a Cloud Pub/Sub Topic.
  5. To add one or more labels to the store, click Labels, click Add label, and enter the key/value label. For more information on resource labels, see Using resource labels.
  6. Click Save.

gcloud

To edit a DICOM store, run the gcloud healthcare dicom-stores update command. The gcloud CLI does not support editing labels.

Before using any of the command data below, make the following replacements:

  • LOCATION: the dataset location
