Ginkgo CADx is an advanced DICOM viewer and dicomizer that can also be used to convert png, jpeg, bmp, pdf, tiff to DICOM files.
The version developed here is a continuation of the now abandoned free version developed by MetaEmotion:
Ginkgo CADx is licensed under the terms of the Lesser GNU Public Licence 3.
To build Ginkgo CADx the following software packages are required:
- ITK (>= 4.8)
- VTK (>= 6.2), Please note that the code does currently not compile with the VTK OpenGL2 rendering backend (see #21 and #34). VTK >= 7.0 defaults to this newer backend when configured without parameters, and currently you will have to set VTK_RENDERING_BACKEND=OpenGL when building VTK to sucessfully compile ginkgocadx.
- wxWidgets (>= 3.0.1)
- DCMTK (>= 3.6.1-20150924)
- A C++ compiler that supports the C++11 standard
With these prerequisites available run cmake on the Ginkgo CADx source tree and then use the selected build system to build the software. After the software was sucessfully compiled run the install target:
mkdir build cd build/ cmake .. make
The original Ginkgo CADx implementation was done with cross-platform compatibility in mind, i.e. the software should compile on MS Windows, macOS, and flavours of Linux. However, currently the main development platforms are Debian GNU/Linux and Gentoo Linux using the GNU gcc compiler tool chain. Hence incompatibilities may creep in and bug reports with fixes for other platforms are very welcome.
Debian/Ubuntu specific build instructions
The following packages must be installed in order to compile it:
chrpath cmake libcairo2-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev libdcmtk-dev libfftw3-dev libfreetype6-dev libgtk2.0-dev libinsighttoolkit4-dev libjsoncpp-dev libmysqlclient-dev libsqlite3-dev libssl-dev libvtk6-dev libwrap0-dev libwxgtk3.0-dev libxml2-dev libgdcm-tools
On Debian Stretch and Sid these packages can be installed by simply running:
apt build-dep ginkgocadx
Alternatively, if you don't have the src in your
sources.list, the following
should enable you to install all the dependencies:
apt install chrpath cmake libcairo2-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev libdcmtk-dev libfftw3-dev libfreetype6-dev libgtk2.0-dev libinsighttoolkit4-dev libjsoncpp-dev libmysqlclient-dev libsqlite3-dev libssl-dev libvtk6-dev libwrap0-dev libwxgtk3.0-dev libxml2-dev libgdcm-tools
On Ubuntu Xenial (16.04 )the package can be installed from the Xenial ports PPA:
For Yantal the package available from the usual Ubuntu repositories.
