DICOM Send Tool

The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) has created a free Open Source software tool for sending DICOM images, which can be easily set up to send DICOM images to the RadPix Teaching File System.


Download the free DICOM send tool, called Filesender, from RSNA at


Open the file.  If you get an error, you will need to install Java – https://www.java.com.

Install Filesender into c:\RSNA, which then makes a subfolder “Filesender” where all the files will be placed.
Note: This program will NOT make an entry into the Windows Start Menu.  You will have to navigate to the install folder and then run FileSender.jar.
*  Problem Loading?
Note – if you just get a blank window that flashes when you do this, you will have to open a Command Box.  You can open a Command Box in several ways, including doing a search for “cmd” from the Start menu.
Be sure correct drive letter is used (i.e. “c:” in this case)
in the Command Box, enter these commands:
  • cd \{Your install folder}                 – Above example, “cd \RSNA\FileSender”
  • java -jar Filesender.jar

  1. Click the button to the left of the DICOM destination (should be filled in)
  2. Check the box “Include subdirectories” in bottom left corner
  3. Just to the right of the checkbox, there is another box that by default is “dcm”.  Click it and change it to *.
  4. Navigate in left panel to directory of DICOM images.
  5. Click send button in bottom right corner.
Navigate on the RadPix server to the draft cases, by going to the main query page and clicking the draft icon and the new DICOM images will be assembled into a new teaching file.
