UBY DICOM is a cross-platform library for handling DICOM files and network communication in the Ruby language. DICOM is a standard that is widely used throughout the world for saving and transmitting image data used in medicine. The library supports reading, editing and writing files as well as querying, retrieving and sending files.
The goal is to provide a scriptable way of handling DICOM files that is easy, yet powerful, as well as free - in the true spirit of the Ruby language. RUBY DICOM is open source, licensed under the GNU GPL (v3). The library can be used directly to extract information from your DICOM files. However, by combining it with other packages, such as NArray or RMagick, you can perform powerful array and image processing as well as display your images on the screen. Other possibilities includes utilizing the amazing web framework Ruby on Rails to present the content of your DICOM storage in a web interface.
