MyFreePACS is a free web-based radiology image storage and viewing tool

MyFreePACS is a free web-based radiology image storage and viewing tool developed at Children’s Hospital Seattle by PACSsoft members.

MyFreePACS uses a full DICOM server to receive and store images, and then is able to transmit them over the web to the MyFreePACS web client. MyFreePACS was developed to provide an easy-to-use, HIPAA-compliant method for viewing Radiology images from anywhere on a hospital network, or remotely over VPN.

The MyFreePACS web client is a web page that utilizes an ActiveX control for viewing and manipulation of images. The client contains all of the tools found in modern image viewing stations including 3d localization and multi-planar reformation. Many tools in MyFreePACS are not found in the web-based viewing software from major PACS vendors. The system is built entirely on free components and freely available for download and installation from the web.
