XNAT Desktop Client (BETA)

Requires XNAT 1.7.5 or later

The XNAT Desktop Client is a stand-alone application built with Electron that works with the latest XNAT version to upload image session data with anonymization, and download image session data using a native xnat:// protocol to handle an XML download manifest. The desktop client includes the core functionality of the Upload Assistant, plus transfer management capabilities such as "Pause", "Resume" and "Cancel".

XNAT Upload Assistant

The XNAT Upload Assistant is a stand-alone Java application purpose-built to anonymize and upload image session data to your XNAT. It contains the same core functionality as the XNAT upload applet, which is no longer being supported by web browsers, plus additional enhancements for XNAT 1.7 and DicomEdit 6. You can connect the XNAT Upload Assistant securely to one or more XNAT instances.

Download the XNAT Upload Assistant

The latest version of the XNAT Upload Assistant is 1.1.3. Download the appropriate installer for your system:


DICOM Browser

DicomBrowser is an application for inspecting and modifying DICOM metadata in many files at once. A single imaging session can produce thousands of DICOM files; DicomBrowser allows users to view and edit a whole session – or even multiple sessions – at once.

Supports DICOM Edit 4.2 and earlier

The latest version of DICOM Browser is 1.7.5-20181217092853. Download the appropriate installer for your system.



Use XNAT Gateway to query XNAT for DICOM images from a DICOM viewing workstation. You can install the Gateway locally and connect to it as to any other DICOM server. DICOM requests are translated into XNAT requests, and the result is returned over DICOM networking protocol.
