Build Status

DICOMweb Client

JavaScript client implementation of DICOMweb.

For further details please refer to PS3.18 of the DICOM standard.


This is work-in-progress and should not be used in clinical practice.

The main motivation for this project is:

  • Support for storing, quering, retrieving DICOM objects over the web using RESTful services STOW-RS, QIDO-RS and WADO-RS, respectively
  • Building a lightweight library to facilitate integration into web applications


Install the dicomweb-client package using the npm package manager:

npm install dicomweb-client

Building and testing

Build and test code locally:

git clone ~/dicomweb-client
cd ~/dicomweb-client
npm install
npm run build
npm test


<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
const url = 'http://localhost:8080/dicomweb';
const client = new DICOMwebClient.api.DICOMwebClient({url});
client.searchForStudies().then(studies => {
