Default View DICOM images?

Hello.

What is the best free (no trialwares!) software that can view DICOM
images, from doctors' offices and hospitals, in updated Windows XP Pro
SP3? I only need to view the images.

Thank you in advance.

Are you sure there isn't a viewer on the CD ?

*******

You could start with an article on DICOM.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dicom

*******

Or, you could start with a sample from a site that
keeps medical imaging samples. This one, for example,
is a human knee. The beginning of the file contains
an index section. Using a hex editor, you'll eventually
find "PNG". And that is the beginning of the first image.

http://www.mypacs.net/repos/mpv3_rep...r/61840350.ipd

What isn't clear, is whether anything on that site is
official DICOM or not.

*******

I'm sure the staff at the hospital have had this
question before. I found the staff at reception
where I visited, to be pretty helpful. There was
a medical technician hanging around at the desk,
and he answered all my questions. (This is not
reception at the front of the building, but
reception at a specialist clinic inside
the building, where clever people will be
hanging around.) I did a dry run before my
appointment, making sure I could find the
place.

In reading an article today, I find out that the
hospital makes $12 million a year off parking fees.
Now you know why the hospital is so big. It's to
max out the money they can make off the parking :-)

NOTE: Original article posted to:

microsoft.public.windowsxp.general
microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics
microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support

Removed the duplicated microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support in my
reply and to reduce the number of newsgroups to which the cross-posted
article was shotgunned (from 4 down to 3). Was considering removing
microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics but decided to leave it for now.

Like Paul says, there's probably a viewer included on the disc where are
the imaging file copies. That's where I remember finding one after
getting an MRI. As I recall, the one they gave me on the disc wanted to
install but, I think, I managed to run it from the disc.

It's free for evaluation (i.e., expiring trial version). Fully
functional. While it is trialware, it appears you merely have to
re-download the product to get an extension to the expiration.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/opendicomviewer/
That one is free and open source.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/opendicomviewer/
That one is free and open source.

http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/...M-Image-Viewer
Supposedly derived from:
http://imagej.net/

http://www.dicomlibrary.com/viewer-online/
That's a shared library of DICOM images, perhaps for educational
purposed. If you're willing to upload your DICOM images (in a .zip
file) then you can use their web-based viewer. You don't need to
install any software but you do have to upload your images. They say
"Do not upload files with information written on image!" and it's likely
that you do have personal info in the image files.

Yeah, they're so expensive. Also, their constructions to expand isn't
helping recently! I had to pay almost 13K just to test on my almost 40
years high blood pressured old heart recently.

Oops, thank you for catching that!


What is the best free (no trialwares!) software that can view DICOM
images, from doctors' offices and hospitals, in updated Windows XP Pro
SP3? I only need to view the images.


Like Paul says, there's probably a viewer included on the disc where are
the imaging file copies. That's where I remember finding one after
getting an MRI. As I recall, the one they gave me on the disc wanted to
install but, I think, I managed to run it from the disc.


Nope. Here is what I saw in my local DVD copy (so slow!) to HDD.

It's free for evaluation (i.e., expiring trial version). Fully
functional. While it is trialware, it appears you merely have to
re-download the product to get an extension to the expiration.


That program worked. However, I changed the dates to years later as a
test, but it nagged me to download. I just installed its latest. :P


http://sourceforge.net/projects/opendicomviewer/
That one is free and open source.

Duplicates? Hmm, this requires Java?


http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/...M-Image-Viewer


I get "Sorry, I can't read a DICOM file with this Transfer Syntax." with
my image files.


Supposedly derived from:
http://imagej.net/

http://www.dicomlibrary.com/viewer-online/
That's a shared library of DICOM images, perhaps for educational
purposed. If you're willing to upload your DICOM images (in a .zip
file) then you can use their web-based viewer. You don't need to
install any software but you do have to upload your images. They say
"Do not upload files with information written on image!" and it's likely
that you do have personal info in the image files.


Heck no to that. These are privates. :/

Are you sure there isn't a viewer on the CD ?


Nope. Here is what I have in my local DVD (not CD) copy:

I checked the "MAGIC" file on the Windows port of the
Linux "file" command, and it has one entry for DICOM.
The magic string in the header is "DICM", at offset 128 bytes.
I didn't see any evidence that file.exe is capable of
looking any further than that.

Using the file.exe command, whether on Linux or Windows would
be a start. But only if you don't have a hex editor
handy.

http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/file.htm

That package is a bit tricky, in that file.exe
won't work right, unless the lib and bin folders
are at the same level. The file.exe program goes
searching for the magic file as ../lib/magic
or similar. Normally, for the GNUWIN32 stuff,
I just throw package components into a single
folder and use them that way. But for "file.exe",
a part of the directory structure must be maintained.

And really, all you're doing in that case, is
the same sort of thing you could do with a hex
editor. Namely, look at offset 128 (0x80 hex)
and see if the DICM string is present.

*******

The last time I was researching the topic, this FAQ
showed in the search results.

http://www.dclunie.com/medical-image...tml/part8.html

The text on this page, makes reference to a JAVA based viewer.

http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/...M-Image-Viewer

* Preamble: comprising 128 bytes, followed by,
* Prefix: comprising the characters 'D', 'I', 'C', 'M', followed by,
* File Meta Header: This comprises, among others, the
Media SOP Class UID, Media SOP Instance UID,
and the Transfer Syntax UID. By default, these
are encoded in explicit VR, Little Endian. The
data is to be read and interpreted depending
upon the VR type.
* Data Set: comprising a number of DICOM Elements,
characterized by tags and their values.

So you can probably dig something up.

ImageJ (needs Java, written in Java to run on multiple platforms)

http://rsb.info.nih.gov/ij/

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imagej

To get Java, find a JRE on here.

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...ads/index.html

What you want, is a "file which is big and doesn't have the
word online in the description". The reason for the care,
is adware or drive-by install awaits some lucky "online"
file users. The complete packages tend to be clean.

Windows x64 40.94 MB jre-8u40-windows-x64.exe

It's not clear to me, how compatible the Java streams are.
For example, when Java 8 came out, some Java packages
still worked better with Java 7. So you may still
need to play around a bit.

Happy downloading,

Paul

Googling "dicom file viewer" returns quite a few choices, including

Default View DICOM images?

What is the best free (no trialwares!) software that can view DICOM
images, from doctors' offices and hospitals, in updated Windows XP Pro
SP3? I only need to view the images.


Our MRI clinic provided free on the CD software EFilmLt.EXE from
www.merge.com. It works with WinXP.


I must be blind, but I don't see a downloadable EFilmLt.EXE software on
Merge's web site?

Googling "dicom file viewer" returns quite a few choices, including
some free ones.


But so many are free to be trialwares only. Many old freewares cannot
seem to open the image files (can't share them in public too).

Allah's Apostle said, "Once while a prophet amongst the prophets was
taking a rest underneath a tree, an ant bit him. He, therefore, ordered
that his luggage be taken away from underneath that tree and then
ordered that the dwelling place of the ants should be set on fire. Allah
sent him a revelation: 'Wouldn't it have been sufficient to burn a
single ant (that bit you)?'" --Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Book 54,
