ohif-core is a collection of useful functions and classes for building web-based medical imaging applications. This library helps power OHIF's zero-footprint DICOM viewer.
This library offers pre-packaged solutions for features common to Web-based medical imaging viewers. For example:
- DICOM Web
- Hanging Protocols
- Managing a study's measurements
- Managing a study's DICOM metadata
- A flexible pattern for extensions
- And many others
It does this while remaining decoupled from any particular view library or rendering logic. While we use it to power our React Viewer, it can be used with Vue, React, Vanilla JS, or any number of other frameworks.
The documentation for this library is sparse. The best way to get started is to look at its top level exports, and explore the source code of features that interest you. If you want to see how we use this library, you can check out our viewer implementation.
This library is pre- v1.0. All realeases until a v1.0 have the possibility of introducing breaking changes. Please depend on an "exact" version in your projects to prevent issues caused by loose versioning.
// with npm
npm i ohif-core --save-exact
// with yarn
yarn add ohif-core --exact
Usage is dependent on the feature(s) you want to leverage. The bulk of
ohif-core's features are "pure" and can be imported and used in place.
Example: retrieving study metadata from a server
const studiesMetadata = await studies
It is notoriously difficult to setup multiple dependent repositories for end-to-end testing and development. That's why we recommend writing and running unit tests when adding and modifying features for this library. This allows us to program in isolation without a complex setup, and has the added benefit of producing well-tested business logic.
- Clone this repository
- Navigate to the project directory, and
- To begin making changes,
yarn run dev
- To commit changes, run
yarn run cm
When creating tests, place the test file "next to" the file you're testing. For example:
// Fileindexjs // Test for fileindextestjs
As you add and modify code,
jest will watch for uncommitted changes and run
your tests, reporting the results to your terminal. Make a pull request with
your changes to
master, and a core team member will review your work. If you
have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out via a GitHub issue.
