Radiology Software – Imaging Technology Redefined
Radiology software is the latest buzzword in the medical community. The demand for radiology software for radiology applications has been increasing, fueled by advancements in both image-acquisition and image-analysis techniques. The application of image-processing software is often limited by cost, lack of flexibility, and/or specific hardware requirements.
There are medical imaging software tools such as windows based AMIDE, Dicome2 and Dicoem3 versions among others that can be run on most of the present day PCs.
Radiologists use these imaging software tools in various types of image processing tasks. The radiology journals publish reviewed radiology papers, case reports and a number of radiology articles giving details about the latest technical advancements and inventions in the field of medical imaging. You get to know about the latest radiology products.
Some of the popular radiology software are as given below:
MicroDicom – An application for primary processing and preservation of medical images in DICOM format. The software is equipped with most common tools for manipulation of images and it has a user interface.
AMIDE - (DOS, Macintosh, Windows and Unix) This tool is used for viewing, analyzing, and registering volumetric medical imaging data sets. It runs on any system that supports the toolkit.
Dicom2 - (Windows and Unix) It is a free command-line driven program that enables you to convert medical images and DICOM files to various other formats, while optionally performing some rudimentary image processing tasks.
Dicom3Tools - Tools and libraries for handling offline files of DICOM 3 attributes, and conversion of proprietary formats to DICOM 3.
Radiology software has revolutionized the art of imaging.
