DICOM Image Conversion and Viewers
Snowbound Software’s imaging SDKs and web viewers include support for the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) image formats to provide flexible and reliable solutions for viewing, converting, and manipulating DICOM images.
What is DICOM?
DICOM is a grayscale format designed for use with medical images including CT scans, MRIs, and ultrasounds. The format includes both a header (for text data) and the complete image in one file. A DICOM file can contain image information in three-dimensions.
Viewing and Conversion
- Our RasterMaster Imaging SDK allows you to build viewing, conversion and over 140 other expert imaging functions securely into your custom applications to support DICOM files.
- Our powerful VirtualViewer document and image web viewer enables you to view, convert, manipulate, annotate, and print DICOM files through a standard Web browser. Because VirtualViewer is developed from our robust imaging SDK, it supports all of the file formats offered in our Java library. With VirtualViewer you have the ability to view multiple document and image formats, including DICOM, through a universal viewer.
Important: As we all know document and image specifications are intentionally loosely written and rarely updated. As a result many applications create documents “incorrectly” and they do not adhere to the latest specifications.
In order to maintain the highest ethical standards and help provide customers with the most positive user experience, Snowbound Software recommends that, as part of your purchase process, you test your own sample documents against our products. Snowbound, unlike most competitors, develops its own technology. If in the rare case you come across a problem or non-conforming document or image, we can often fix it.
