Can MicroDicom improve the response speed when I change image series?

Post by dicoms »

Hi,
Can MicroDicom improve the response speed when I change image series?
If the size of different series are big (it contains many images), the display speed when changing series will have a lag.

Thanks for suggestion. We added it to our TODO list and will be available in a future version soon.

Hi,
It still has delay of 0.x or 1.x seconds on version 2022.2(Build 6006) 64bit, I hace 64GB RAM memory, you can read all files to RAM in order to improve the series switch speed. Radiant DICOM viewer software has almost no delay for any files.

Hello,
Could you try the latest beta of version 2022.3? We made a lot of improvement on loading of images. t
Please tell us your feedback after that.

There seems to be a bug in this latest beta version:

In the "DICOM Browser" pane, when:
1. right-clicking on the "Downloaded patients" section header (or on single Patient/Study within that section), and then
2. choosing "Remove", and then
3. choosing "Delete" ("to permanently delete from DICOM browser and drive")

... the items are not truly deleted, and they all re-appear after pressing the "Refresh" icon.

EDIT: I might need to take that statement back, as the problem still seems to partially remain after reverting back to v2022.3 . Now after Removing/Deleting patients/studies, it seems that one slice of from each of them still remains undeleted.

Very strange, as I did not notice anything like this before temporarily trying the beta version!

I re-checked, and the problem actually only truly occurs in the new beta version, even with a completely clean install (performed after un-installing v2022.3 and then also manually deleting the leftover '%AppData%\MicroDicom' directory).

Although the problem also occurs when attempting to revert back to v2022.3 by installing it in-place over the beta version, the problem goes away if first fully uninstalling the beta and then manually cleaning up as above, and only then performing a completely clean install of v2022.3 .

The issue with failed delete of a file is already fixed in the latest beta. Thank you.
