Yes, just as I did yesterday with a study the patient
brought along from Austria. The simple solution is to
extract a few images and store them in the GNUmed database.
The better solution (if available) is to use a DICOM tool
and copy the study to the local DICOM store and the access
it via Aeskulap or some such viewer as Sebastian suggested.
