Introduction

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:

Build

To build Ginkgo CADx the following software packages are required:

  • ITK (>= 4.8)
  • VTK (>= 6.2)
  • wxWidgets (>= 3.0.1)
  • DCMTK (>= 3.6.1-20150924)
  • A C++ compiler that supports the C++11 standard
  • CMake

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.

The original Ginkgo CADx implementation was done with cross-platform compatibility in mind, i.e. the software should compile on MS Windows, Mac OS X, 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.
