NAME
       movescu - DICOM retrieve	(C-MOVE) SCU

SYNOPSIS
       movescu [options] peer port [dcmfile-in...]

DESCRIPTION
       The  movescu  application implements both an SCU	for the	Query/Retrieve
       Service Class and  an  SCP  for	the  Storage  Service  Class.  movescu
       supports	 retrieve  functionality  using	 the  C-MOVE message. It sends
       query keys to an	SCP and	awaits responses. It will accept  associations
       for  the	 purpose  of  receiving	 images	sent as	a result of the	C-MOVE
       request.	The application	can be used to test SCPs of the	Query/Retrieve
       Service	Class.	The  movescu  application can initiate the transfer of
       images to a third party or can retrieve images to itself. Note that the
       use  of	the  term  'move' is a misnomer. The C-MOVE operation actually
       performs	an image copy (no images will be deleted from the SCP).

NOTES
       Each file supplied on the command line will be sent to the SCP as  part
       of  a  C-MOVE  request.	The  query file	must be	a valid	DICOM data set
       containing the dataset part of a	 C-MOVE-RQ  message.  The  query  file
       could, for instance, be created with the	dump2dcm utility from a	script
       like the	following example:

       # request all images for	the patient with ID=PAT001
       (0008,0052) CS [PATIENT]	    # QueryRetrieveLevel
       (0010,0020) LO [PAT001]	    # PatientID

       Individual attributes of	each file sent can be modified or supplemented
       using the '-k key' option. For example the command:

       movescu -k 0010,0020=PAT002 caesar 5678 patqry.dcm

       will,  when  sent  to  the  SCP	caesar	at TCP/IP port 5678, cause any
       PatientID attribute in patqry.dcm to have the value 'PAT002'.  If  such
       an  attribute  is  present  it  will  be	replaced, if absent it will be
       inserted. The -k	option can be present more than	once. The  value  part
       (after  the  '=')  may  be absent causing the attribute to be sent with
       zero length. It is not possible to replace or insert attributes	within
       sequences using the -k option.

       If  no  file  is	 specified  on	the  command  line,  the query must be
       specified completely with one or	more '-k key' options.

       For all uses of movescu,	the SCP	must be	configured to 'know' about the
       AE title	where the images are to	be transmitted.	This is	required since
       the C-MOVE request only contains	the AE Title of	the target and the SCP
       must  be	 able  to  convert  this AE Title into TCP/IP address and port
       number  in  order  to  actually	send  the  images  over	  a   separate
       association.

       The  C-MOVE  operation  of  the	Query/Retrieve	Service	 Class is able
       retrieve	images or to initiate a	copy of	images to a third party.

   Known Problems
       movescu is intended to be used as a testing  tool  for  DICOM  software
       developers.  The	query keys file	must be	created	by hand	based upon the
       contents	of the SCP.

       Even when using a third-party move it  may  be  necessary  to  set  the
       TCP/IP  port  number to a reasonable value (via the --port option). Per
       default,	port number 104	is used	which is a  restricted	port  on  many
       systems.	movescu	always tries to	listen for incoming associations.

       The  movescu application	makes no attempt to prevent incorrect queries.
       In particular, the query	keys of	a C-MOVE request should	 only  contain
       the  QueryRetrieveLevel	attribute  and	one  or	 more of the so-called
       'unique key attributes' (PatientID, StudyInstanceUID, SeriesInstanceUID
       and SOPInstanceUID).

   DICOM Conformance
   SCU Conformance
       The movescu application supports	the following SOP Classes as an	SCU:

       MOVEPatientRootQueryRetrieveInformationModel	    1.2.840.10008.5.1.4.1.2.1.2
       MOVEStudyRootQueryRetrieveInformationModel	    1.2.840.10008.5.1.4.1.2.2.2
       MOVEPatientStudyOnlyQueryRetrieveInformationModel    1.2.840.10008.5.1.4.1.2.3.2

       The  movescu  application will propose presentation contexts for	one of
       the abovementioned supported SOP	 Classes  depending  on	 command  line
       options	(-P,  -S,  or  -O).  Each  proposed  presentation context will
       propose the 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

       This behaviour can be changed with the --propose	options.

       The movescu application will accept presentation	contexts  for  all  of
       the  abovementioned  supported  SOP  Classes  using any of the 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

       When acting as an SCP, the movescu  application	will  prefer  transfer
       syntaxes	having an explicit encoding over the default implicit transfer
       syntax. If movescu is running on	big-endian  hardware  it  will	prefer
       BigEndianExplicit  to  LittleEndianExplicit  transfer  syntax (and vice
       versa). This behaviour 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

       The movescu application does not	support	extended negotiation.

   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  movescu  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).

EXAMPLES
       movescu --patient --port	9876 --move TEST_AE --call ARCHIVE caesar 104 q.dcm

       sends  the  attributes contained	in the DICOM file 'q.dcm' as part of a
       C-MOVE request to application entity ARCHIVE on the host	caesar at port
       104 using the Patient Root query	model. movescu itself uses the default
       AE title	MOVESCU. The C-MOVE request will specifiy that	images	should
       be  transferred	to  the	 destination  AE title TEST_AE (via the	--move
       option).	 How  the  SCP	interprets  this  request   depends   on   its
       configuration.	movescu	  will	 listen	 on  part  9876	 for  incoming
       associations in order to	receive	the requested images from the SCP.

       Images can be copied to a third party by	using a	different  destination
       AE  title (e.g. --move ANOTHER_AE). Of course, the SCP must 'know' this
       AE title	and the	destination must be acting as an SCP  of  the  Storage
       Service Class (the storescp application can be used for this purpose).

LOGGING
       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
       _etcdir_/logger.cfg).

COMMAND	LINE
       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
       behaviour  conforms  to	the  standard  evaluation rules	of common Unix
       shells.

       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  to   summarize	common
       combinations  of	 options/parameters  and  avoids longish and confusing
       command lines (an example is provided in	file _datadir_/dumppat.txt).

ENVIRONMENT
       The movescu 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  behaviour	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.
