Development : DICOM libraries , frameworks and toolkits for developers !
Developers used to search for libraries , frameworks even for similar applications to the projects they are working on , The frameworks and libraries don’t only save the development and production time , but it extend the capability of the application and extend the features as well regarding the goals they made for and the the features they built with .
This list i made especially for developers who are seeking the exact library in their usable programming language to work with . somehow most of the libraries have a very bad dark side ( NO documentation ) , but some of them really helpful and useful and with some search turns out they are usable , those ones have good support a long with very well written documentation .

dicom4j – link:
dicom related framework and applications in java. The project is divide in 3 parts, the framework, a dicom toolkit, and dicom apps.
Eviewbox – link :
Eviewbox is a java imaging suite, its purpose is to view and spread native DICOM medical images and allowing for 2D reconstructions. EViewbox applet will allow to see the DICOM images on every platform.
Ruby DICOM – link :
RUBY DICOM is a cross-platform library for handling DICOM files in the Ruby language. DICOM is a standard that is widely used throughout the world for saving and transmitting image data used in medicine. The library currently only supports reading files.
openDICOM.NET - link :

DICOM.pm – link :
DICOM.pm is a Perl library allowing interpretation of DICOM-compliant medical image files. It can be used by applications to transfer, interpret, and archive DICOM files.
pydicomlib – link:
DICOM python library . It’s great for scripting quick-and-dirty DICOM related tasks, for example, opening a DICOM file, reading and modifying tags, communicating with DICOM servers etc via C-FIND, C-MOVE, C-STORE
pydicom – link :
Its a Python library to manipulate data elements in DICOM files with python . Its open source under MIT license .
