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. 

  • Mac OS

    • Horos/Osirix uploader

  • server-based vendor-neutral uploader

    • RadUploader.com

    • Radiopaedia Uploader (open-source)

If you have created an uploader and would like us to list it here, please contact [email protected].

This Mac plug-in for Horos or OsiriX (see below) 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 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 a 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)

RadUploader is a new version based on the open-source Radiopaedia Uploader (see below). It is fully DICOM compliant and compatible with any PACS, and uses the latest DICOM libraries that allow for conversion and upload of any study type including multi-frame studies such as cineloops and tomosynthesis (3D mammography).

The app does everything for you except choosing which cases to upload:

  • authenticate with Radiopaedia

  • query your PACS

  • retrieve from PACS and anonymize the images

  • converts them to web-optimized PNG *

  • package images and case details

  • upload

* Note: DICOM upload is not yet available (c. August 2022). 

Visit raduploader.com for instructions and download.

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

There are two components and both are available as public projects on GitHub. 

  1. github.com/radiopaedia/uploader-agent

  2. github.com/radiopaedia/uploader-web

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