Converting an XPS file to a DICOM image in Java is a simple two-step process. The first step is to use the Aspose.PDF for Java API to export the XPS file to a JPEG image. Aspose.PDF for Java is part of the Aspose.Total for Java package, which provides a comprehensive set of APIs for working with documents, images, and other file formats.
Once the XPS file has been converted to a JPEG image, the second step is to use the Aspose.Imaging for Java API to render the JPEG image to a DICOM image. Aspose.Imaging for Java is an image processing API that provides a wide range of features for manipulating images, including resizing, cropping, rotating, and more. It also supports a variety of image formats, including JPEG, PNG, TIFF, and DICOM.
By combining the two APIs, you can easily convert an XPS file to a DICOM image in Java. The process is straightforward and requires minimal coding. All you need to do is use the Aspose.PDF for Java API to export the XPS file to a JPEG image, and then use the Aspose.Imaging for Java API to render the JPEG image to a DICOM image. With the help of these two APIs, you can quickly and easily convert XPS files to DICOM images in Java.
Export XPS to DICOM via Java
Get Started with Java File Automation APIs
You can easily use Aspose.Total for Java directly from a Maven based project and include libraries in your pom.xml.
Alternatively, you can get a ZIP file from downloads .
Convert XPS to DICOM in a Single File via Java
The API also allows you to export XPS file to DICOM to a single file. In order to convert all pages, you can first render your XPS document to one TIFF file and after that, you can export the TIFF file to DICOM. You can open the input file using Document class and create Resolution, TiffSettings, & TIFF device objects. You can get a single TIFF image using process method of TiffDevice class. Finally, you can load TIFF file using Image class and save it to DICOM format using save method.
Convert XPS to DICOM With Watermark via Java
Using the API, you can also export XPS file to DICOM with watermark in your DICOM document. In order to add a watermark to you can first convert XPS to JPEG and add a watermark in it. In order to add watermark, load an image file using the Image class, create an object of the Graphics class and initialize it with Image object, create a new Matrix object and set translation and transformation to the desired angle and add watermark using Graphics.drawString method. After adding the watermark in your image, you can save the JPEG as DICOM format.
Convert & Rotate XPS to DICOM File via Java
Using the API, you can also rotate the output DICOM image as per your needs. The Image.rotateFlip method can be used to rotate the image by 90/180/270-degrees and flip the image horizontally or vertically. The library provides simple methods to perform complex operations while encapsulating all ugly details. You can specify the type of rotation and flip to apply to the image. In order to rotate and flip the image, you can load the converted JPEG image using the Image class and call the Image.rotateFlip method while specifying the appropriate RotateFlipType .

What is XPS File Format?
XPS, short for XML Paper Specification, is a file format created by Microsoft to represent fixed-layout documents. XPS files contain the content and print settings of a document, making them suitable for preserving the layout and appearance of a document across different devices and platforms.
The XPS format is based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language), a widely used markup language for structured data representation. XPS files encapsulate document content, such as text, images, vector graphics, and annotations, in a structured XML format. This enables easy interpretation and rendering of the document’s visual elements.
XPS files are conceptually similar to PDF (Portable Document Format) files in that they both aim to provide a reliable way to present and share documents while preserving their formatting and layout. However, PDF files have gained broader support across different software applications and hardware devices, making them more widely accepted and compatible.
To view and work with XPS files, Microsoft provides an XPS Viewer as part of the Windows operating system. Various third-party applications and tools also offer support for opening, creating, and converting XPS files. However, compared to PDF, the range of software and hardware supporting the XPS format may be more limited.
What is DICOM File Format?
Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) is a standard for storing and transmitting medical images. It includes a file format definition and a network protocol. DICOM files can be exchanged between two entities, such as a medical imaging device and a picture archiving and communication system (PACS), or between two PACS. DICOM enables the integration of medical imaging devices and information systems.DICOM files are composed of a file header and a series of data sets. The file header contains information about the file, such as the DICOM version, the transfer syntax used, the patients name, and the study date. The data sets contain the image data and associated information, such as the patient ID, the image modality, and the image orientation.DICOM files can be exchanged over a network using the DICOM protocol. The DICOM protocol is a set of rules that define how DICOM files are to be transmitted. The protocol is based on the TCP/IP protocol.
