Aspose.Total for .NET is a comprehensive suite of .NET components that enables developers to easily create, manipulate, and convert a wide range of file formats within their .NET applications. With Aspose.Total for .NET, developers can quickly and easily export XPS to DICOM image with just two simple steps.
The first step is to use Aspose.PDF for .NET to export XPS to JPEG. Aspose.PDF for .NET is a powerful .NET library that enables developers to create, read, edit, and convert PDF documents within their .NET applications. It provides a wide range of features, such as creating PDF documents from scratch, converting PDF documents to other file formats, and manipulating existing PDF documents. With Aspose.PDF for .NET, developers can easily export XPS to JPEG with just a few lines of code.
The second step is to use Aspose.Imaging for .NET to convert JPEG to DICOM. Aspose.Imaging for .NET is a powerful image processing API that enables developers to manipulate and convert a wide range of image file formats within their .NET applications. It provides a wide range of features, such as resizing, cropping, rotating, and converting images to other file formats. With Aspose.Imaging for .NET, developers can easily convert JPEG to DICOM with just a few lines of code.
In conclusion, Aspose.Total for .NET makes it easy for developers to export XPS to DICOM image within any .NET applications. By using Aspose.PDF for .NET to export XPS to JPEG, and Aspose.Imaging for .NET to convert JPEG to DICOM, developers can quickly and easily convert XPS to DICOM with just two simple steps.
Convert XPS file to DICOM via .NET
Get Started with .NET File Automation APIs
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total or install directly from Package Manager Console of Visual Studio.
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
Convert XPS File to DICOM in a Single File via C#
Using the API, you can also convert XPS file to DICOM to a single image file. In order to convert all pages, you can first render your XPS document to one TIFF file and after that you can export 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 C#
Using the API, you can also convert XPS file to DICOM with watermark in your DICOM document. In order to add a watermark, you can first render your XPS document to JPEG and add a watermark in it. To demonstrate the operation, you can load your converted JPEG image, add transformations using an object of Matrix class and draw a string as the watermark on the image surface using the Graphics class’ DrawString method. After adding the watermark in it, you can save the JPEG as DICOM format. Below is a code example that demonstrates how to add a diagonal watermark to your document.
Convert & Rotate XPS File to DICOM via C#
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. 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 factory method exposed by 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.
