You can use radworks package for sending and receiving DICOM images on your laptop to communicate with Advantage Windows 3.1/4.X
Radworks is a very expensive way of solving this problem, all you need to do is get some form of DICOM SCP (e-film can be downloaded on a trial basis for 30 days) and connect that to the AW workstation. You must set up a DICOM connection (AE Title and Port and hostname or IP address) from the AW to your laptop. Remember to set the connection on the AW to output the images in DICOM 3 format rather than GE's proprietary format. Once you have set up this you can use DICOM push to get the images onto the laptop. There is no need to purchase Radworks for this purpose (it costs a fortune in comparison to e-film and some other free DICOM products out there)unless you want more than simple functionality, and if you do want complex functions then there
HAs your adw got the dat export function which burns a dicom viewer onto the cd If so this is very easy it auto runs within IE 5.5 service pack 2 or IE 6 and allows you to view dicom images and export them anonymised or not as tiff or jpeg to the pc.
It also works well for MDT on the vga projectors . at 31p a cd to get >3000 images on its pretty economical to. I am steadily transfering my orthopaedic imaging to this with only a token film with the orthopods agreement as they can then review 3D images as cine loops and get far more from them. Plus it preserves the colour images from the more interesting SSD techniques.
