##The Radiotherapy DICOM toolkit
RTKIT is a toolkit for processing information from the various DICOM modalities encountered in radiotherapy. It contains a number of classes and convenience methods designed to make it easy to extract and manipulate radiotherapy information of interest, like e.g. segmentation, plan, image and dose data.
Note that the toolkit is in an early state of release, and as such, may be a bit rough in the edges. If you are interested in using RTKIT, please feel free to send me an email with a brief explanation of what you would like to do, and I'll be happy to assist you in getting started with Ruby and RTKIT.
Supported DICOM Modalities
gem install rtkit
- Ruby 1.9.3 (or higher)
Load & Include
require 'rtkit' include RTKIT
Load a set of DICOM files from a folder
# Load files: ds = RTKIT::DataSet.read("C:/phantom_study/")
Example: Merge two structure sets
# Locate the structure set objects: structs = ds.patient.study.iseries.structs # Extract the two structure sets: s1 = structs.first s2 = structs.last # Transfer all ROIs except the external contour: s2.rois.each do |roi| s1.add_roi(roi) unless roi.name.downcase.include?('external') end # Ensure unique ROI Numbers: s1.set_numbers # Write the composed structure set object to file: s1.write("fusion_struct.dcm")
When working with RTKIT in irb, you may be annoyed with all the information that is printed to screen. This is because in irb every variable loaded in the program is automatically printed to the screen. A useful hack to avoid this effect is to append ";0" after a command. Example:
ds = RTKIT::DataSet.read(folder) ;0
