       storescp	- DICOM	storage	(C-STORE) SCP

       storescp	[options] [port]

       The  storescp application implements a Service Class Provider (SCP) for
       the Storage Service Class. It listens on	a  specific  TCP/IP  port  for
       incoming	 association  requests from a Storage Service Class User (SCU)
       and can receive both DICOM images and other  DICOM  composite  objects.
       The  storescp  application also supports	the Verification Service Class
       as an SCP.

       The semantic impacts of the above mentioned options is  clear  for  the
       majority	 of options. Some particular options, however, are so specific
       that they need detailed	descriptions  which  will  be  given  in  this

       Option  --sort-conc-studies  enables  a user to sort all	received DICOM
       objects into different subdirectories. The sorting will	be  done  with
       regard  to  the	studies	the individual objects belong to, i.e. objects
       that belong to the same study will be stored in the same	 subdirectory.
       In  general,  a	DICOM object d_n+1 is considered to belong to the same
       study as	a DICOM	object d_n if and only if d_n and d_n+1	show the exact
       same values in attribute	Study Instance UID. The	names of the resulting
       subdirectories always start with	a prefix p which was  passed  to  this
       option  as  a  parameter.  In addition to this prefix, the subdirectory
       names contain time stamp	information with regard	to the date  and  time
       of  reception of	this particular	study's	first DICOM object. In detail,
       the determination of the	subdirectory names pertains to the pattern


       where YYYY refers to year (4 digits), MM	to month (01-12),  DD  to  day
       (01-31),	HH to hour (00-23), MM to minute (00-59), SS to	second (00-59)
       and PPP to milliseconds (000-999). If the prefix	is  an	empty  string,
       the first '_' is	omitted.

       The  other  --sort-xxx  options	work  in  a  similar  manner, only the
       subdirectory names are created differently. For option --sort-on-study-
       uid the pattern is


       and for option --sort-on-patientname


       where  'PatientName'  is	replaced by 'ANONYMOUS'	if the data element is
       empty or	 absent	 in  the  data	set.  Any  existing  patient  name  is
       transformed  in order to	use only ASCII characters. Please note that in
       this context only the DICOM default character set (ASCII, i.e. no entry
       in  attribute  Specific	Character Set) and Latin-1 (Specific Character
       Set valued 'ISO_IR 100')	are supported. If  another  character  set  is
       found  and the patient name contains non-ASCII characters, a warning is
       printed and the transformation is performed as if Latin-1 character set
       would  be  set  in  the file. This may lead to unreadable or unexpected
       patient name directories	and behaviour. Thus, it	is  advisable  to  use
       --sort-on-patientname  only  if	Latin-1	 or  ASCII  patient  names are
       expected	to be received.

       For option --sort-on-study-uid the same subdirectory will be  used  for
       all  DICOM  objects  that belong	to the same study, i.e.	in contrast to
       the other --sort-xxx  options  there  is	 no  guarantee	that  a	 study
       directory is ever completed.

       Option  --timenames  creates filenames from timestamps corresponding to
       the time, storescp writes a file	to disk. The format is


       where YYYY, MM, DD, HH, MM, SS, PPP are interpreted as described	above.
       If  more	 files	are created at the same	time, SERIALNO is inserted. It
       consists	of a 4-digit, consecutive number (0000 to 9999). For the first
       file,  that  exists  for	 a  specific  time,  no	number (and no '_') is
       inserted	at all.	MD represents an identification	code (2	 letters)  for
       the  kind  of  object  stored  in  the  file (see notes on --rename-on-

       Option --filename-extension appends a specified suffix to each filename
       (a  dot '.' is not added	automatically).	This suffix is not appended to
       the filenames created by	--rename-on-eostudy to maintain	the length  of
       8 characters.

       Option --exec-on-reception allows one to	execute	a certain command line
       after having received and processed one	DICOM  object  (through	 a  C-
       STORE-RQ	 message).  The	 command line to be executed is	passed to this
       option as a parameter. The specified command line may contain a	number
       of placeholders which will be replaced at run time:

       o #p:  complete	path to	the output directory into which	the last DICOM
	 object	was stored (not	available with option --ignore though)
       o #f: filename of the current output file (not  available  with	option
	 --ignore though)
       o #a: calling application entity	title of the peer Storage SCU
       o #c:  called  application entity title used by the peer	Storage	SCU to
	 address storescp
       o #r: calling presentation address, i.e.	hostname or IP address of  the
	 peer Storage SCU
       The  specified  command line is executed	as a separate process, so that
       the execution of	storescp will not be held back.	This behavior  can  be
       influenced with the --exec-sync option.
       Option  --exec-on-eostudy  allows one to	execute	a certain command line
       when all	DICOM objects that belong to one study have been  received  by
       storescp.  The  same  placeholders  as  with --exec-on-reception	may be
       used, except for	'#f', which is not supported. A	 study	is  considered
       complete	 by  storescp when an object belonging to a different study is
       received	or the timeout specified with --eostudy-timeout	 takes	place.
       If  option  --rename-on-eostudy	is  in force, the renaming takes place
       before the external command is executed.
       Option --rename-on-eostudy refers to  the  above	 mentioned  --sort-xxx
       options	and can	only be	used in	combination with one of	these options.
       If a user specifies option --rename-on-eostudy and storescp  determines
       that  all  DICOM	 objects  that	belong	to  a  certain study have been
       received, all DICOM files that belong to	the last study will be renamed
       in  the	corresponding  output  directory. The filenames	into which the
       files are being renamed will be calculated using	the pattern
	 [prefix][consecutive numbering]
       where [prefix] is a 2 character prefix that reveals the kind  of	 DICOM
       object	stored	 in   the   file  and  [consecutive  numbering]	 is  a
       consecutively  numbered,	 6-digit  number,  starting  at	 '000001'.  In
       general,	 the  question	if  all	DICOM objects that belong to one study
       have been received by storescp will be answered positively if and  only
       if  two	consecutively received DICOM objects d_n and d_n+1 do not show
       the same	values in attribute Study Instance UID;	in such	a case,	 d_n+1
       is considered to	belong to a new	study.
       Using  option  --eostudy-timeout	 a  user  can modify the determination
       process to figure out if	all DICOM objects that	belong	to  one	 study
       have already been received by storescp. With regard to this fact, it is
       clear that this option can only be used in combination  with  at	 least
       one   of	 the  following	 options:  --sort-xxx,	--exec-on-eostudy  and
       --rename-on-eostudy. If option --eostudy-timeout	is specified, the  end
       of a study is considered	to have	occurred not only if two consecutively
       received	DICOM objects d_n and d_n+1 do not show	 the  same  values  in
       attribute  Study	 Instance  UID,	 but  also  if within a	time span of x
       seconds after the reception of a	 DICOM	object	d_n,  no  other	 DICOM
       object was received over	the network. Note that the amount x of seconds
       (which determines the length of this time span) has  to	be  passed  to
       this option as a	parameter.
       Please  note  that  two	consecutive  network  connections can transfer
       objects for the same study. The study will only be considered  complete
       when  an	 object	 of  a	different  study is received or	the --eostudy-
       timeout is reached. For this reason, the	options	--fork and --inet  are
       incompatible  with  --exec-on-eostudy,  --rename-on-eostudy and --sort-

       The storescp application	will accept presentation contexts for  all  of
       the  abovementioned  supported  SOP  Classes using any of the following
       transfer	syntaxes:
       LittleEndianImplicitTransferSyntax		    1.2.840.10008.1.2
       LittleEndianExplicitTransferSyntax		    1.2.840.10008.1.2.1
       BigEndianExplicitTransferSyntax			    1.2.840.10008.1.2.2
       The default behavior of the storescp application	is to prefer  transfer
       syntaxes	having an explicit encoding over the default implicit transfer
       syntax. If storescp is running on big-endian hardware  it  will	prefer
       BigEndianExplicit  to  LittleEndianExplicit  transfer  syntax (and vice
       versa). This behavior can be changed with  the  --prefer	 options  (see
       above).	Using  option  --accept-all  any  of  the  following  transfer
       syntaxes	is supported:
       LittleEndianImplicitTransferSyntax		    1.2.840.10008.1.2

       Additional Storage SOP Classes and Transfer Syntaxes can	be  used  with
       the so-called 'association negotiation profiles'	(see below).
       The  storescp  application  does	 not  support  extended	negotiation by
       default.	However, using an appropriate association negotiation  profile
       (see  below) the	optional support for extended negotiation can be added
       to particular SOP classes.
   Access Control
       When compiled on	Unix platforms with TCP	 wrapper  support,  host-based
       access  control	can  be	enabled	with the --access-control command line
       option. In this case the	access control rules defined in	 the  system's
       host  access  control  tables  for  storescp  are enforced. The default
       locations of the	host access control tables  are	 /etc/hosts.allow  and
       /etc/hosts.deny.	Further	details	are described in hosts_access(5).
   Running storescp from inetd
       On  Posix  platforms,  storescp	can  be	initiated through the inetd(8)
       super  server.  This  requires  that  storescp  be  configured  in  the
       /etc/inetd.conf	configuration file. A typical configuration line could
       look like this:
       acr-nema	stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/storescp -id +ac -od /tmp/storescp
       where -id (--inetd)  activates  the  inetd  mode	 in  which  the	 DICOM
       association  is	actually accepted by inetd and passed to storescp, +ac
       (--access-control) activates  the  TCP  wrapper	based  access  control
       described  above	 and -od (--output-directory) defines the directory in
       which storescp stores incoming DICOM objects.  Note  that  the  service
       name  ('acr-nema'  in this example) determines the port number on which
       DICOM associations are accepted and must	be defined  in	/etc/services.
       When  running  from inetd, the stdout and stderr	streams	are discarded.
       However,	you can	still configure	logging	via  the  --log-config	option
       (see below).
       Please note that	when run through inetd,	storescp is executed with root
       privileges, which may be	a security risk.
   Association Negotiation Profiles and	Configuration Files
       storescp	supports a flexible mechanism for specifying the DICOM network
       association  negotiation	 behavior,  based  on  so-called  'association
       negotiation profiles' which may be read from a configuration file.  The
       format  and  semantics  of  this	 configuration	file are documented in
       The level of logging output of  the  various  command  line  tools  and
       underlying  libraries  can  be  specified by the	user. By default, only
       errors and warnings are written to the  standard	 error	stream.	 Using
       option  --verbose  also	informational messages like processing details
       are reported. Option --debug can	be used	to get	more  details  on  the
       internal	 activity,  e.g.  for debugging	purposes. Other	logging	levels
       can be selected using option --log-level. In --quiet  mode  only	 fatal
       errors  are reported. In	such very severe error events, the application
       will usually terminate. For  more  details  on  the  different  logging
       levels, see documentation of module 'oflog'.
       In  case	 the logging output should be written to file (optionally with
       logfile rotation), to syslog (Unix) or the event	log  (Windows)	option
       --log-config  can  be  used.  This  configuration  file also allows for
       directing only certain messages to a particular output stream  and  for
       filtering  certain  messages  based  on the module or application where
       they are	generated.  An	example	 configuration	file  is  provided  in
       All  command  line  tools  use  the  following notation for parameters:
       square brackets enclose optional	 values	 (0-1),	 three	trailing  dots
       indicate	 that multiple values are allowed (1-n), a combination of both
       means 0 to n values.
       Command line options are	distinguished from parameters by a leading '+'
       or  '-' sign, respectively. Usually, order and position of command line
       options are arbitrary (i.e. they	 can  appear  anywhere).  However,  if
       options	are  mutually exclusive	the rightmost appearance is used. This
       behavior	conforms to the	 standard  evaluation  rules  of  common  Unix
       In  addition,  one  or more command files can be	specified using	an '@'
       sign as a prefix	to the filename	(e.g. @command.txt).  Such  a  command
       argument	 is  replaced  by  the	content	of the corresponding text file
       (multiple whitespaces are treated as a  single  separator  unless  they
       appear  between	two  quotation marks) prior to any further evaluation.
       Please note that	a command file cannot contain  another	command	 file.
       This  simple  but  effective  approach  allows  one to summarize	common
       combinations of options/parameters and  avoids  longish	and  confusing
       command lines (an example is provided in	file _datadir_/dumppat.txt).
       The  storescp  utility  will  attempt  to  load DICOM data dictionaries
       specified in the	DCMDICTPATH environment	variable. By default, i.e.  if
       the   DCMDICTPATH   environment	 variable   is	 not   set,  the  file
       _datadir_/dicom.dic will	be loaded unless the dictionary	is built  into
       the application (default	for Windows).
       The   default   behavior	  should  be  preferred	 and  the  DCMDICTPATH
       environment variable only used when alternative data  dictionaries  are
       required.  The  DCMDICTPATH environment variable	has the	same format as
       the Unix	shell PATH variable in that a colon (':')  separates  entries.
       On  Windows systems, a semicolon	(';') is used as a separator. The data
       dictionary code will  attempt  to  load	each  file  specified  in  the
       DCMDICTPATH  environment	variable. It is	an error if no data dictionary
       can be loaded.
