DICOM Viewer

DICOM (Digital Image and COmmunication in Medicine) is simply a file format; DICOM viewers are really nothing more than inexpensive PCs that run DICOM viewer software that allows the images to be displayed and edited. Using with a DICOM Web Viewer, the images can be published over the WWW, making it possible for medical professionals to consult with colleagues anywhere in the world.

DICOM viewer is the essence of the digital medical image system that has completely changed the way hospitals, clinics and private medical offices now store their medical images. Low cost digital imaging has long been available, but in the absence of affordable components such as the e-film workstation and DICOM Web Viewer, it has been of little use to any but high-profile, well-funded private hospitals and major university medical centers.
