Multiple instances of Orthanc can easily be deployed in the hospital network or even in the same computer, which simplifies the interconnection between the DICOM modalities and the data management of medical images. Orthanc is unique with respect to the fact that it provides a modern RESTful API: Orthanc can be driven from any computer
