A number of uploaders are available to help you create cases faster than by merely using the browser.

Using our application programming interface (API), third parties can develop applications to automate uploading cases from PACS or from other settings. 

Horos/Osirix uploader (Mac OSX)

This is a Mac plug-in for Horos or OsiriX (see below) that allows you to quickly upload selected studies / images to your Radiopaedia account as draft cases or add images to an existing case you own (public, unlisted or draft).

Although the plug-in will work equally well with both Horos and Osirix, we strongly encourage you to use Horos and not to use OsiriX Lite. Why? Well, not only is Horos free and awesomely open-source (which we love) but it also does not put an ugly red "not for medical usage" at the bottom of each image. If you have the paid version of OsiriX then that is fine as the red text does not appear.    

  • multiple studies, series, images
  • create a new draft case or send to an existing case
  • automatic anonymisation
  • higher image quality than native Horos / Osirix image export
  • automatic gender and age including day, week, month for pediatrics
  • add series titles to findings (optional)
  • add day numbering to studies (optional)

If you haven't done so already, first download Horos from here.

Then download the Radiopaedia plugin from here.

Radiopaedia vendor neutral uploader (Windows)

This is a stand-alone open source project started by Radiopaedia and coded by Andy Le. It is designed to be installed on its own server and only needs query-retrieve rights on your PACS database. 

It will then take care of the rest, anonymising cases and sending them to your Radiopaedia account as draft cases

  • multiple studies, series, images
  • automatic anonymisation
  • image and stack cropping
  • keeps a local database of previously uploaded cases to avoid duplication
Download options

There are two options currently, one far easier than the other: 


The initial author of the open source code, Andy Le, has also created a personal version that is simpler to install. It is available from his site. As part of the process, you will need to contact Andy to organize a license key (free trial period available). 

Download and setup instruction from http://andyrapi.gear.host/


If you are a bit more technologically inclined and would prefer a completely free no-strings-attached version of the uploader you can get everything you need form GitHub along with detailed instructions. 

Download from github: https://github.com/radiopaedia

Installation manual: PDF (or in the "readme" file at github)
