    Question Software to view diagnostic imagery at home? (MRI, CT Scan, Xray)

    Salutations. I fractured my tibial plateau this month and the doctors have shown me the imagery on their computers. That stuff is cool
    I want to be able to view those files at home on my PC. I can get the electronic files on CD, but I need to know what software is needed. Has anyone already been down this road? It looks like the MRI images are in DICOM .dci format. It would be nice if I could rely on a single, free program to view MRI, CT Scan and Xray files.

    Thanks,
    ND

    My disc came with the program to view it. It's Horizon Rad Station if that helps. Lots of info on Tib Plateau fractures [ame="http://www.tetongravity.com/forums/showthread.php?t=192375"]here[/ame] and you could also put up your xrays or scans [ame="http://www.tetongravity.com/forums/showthread.php?t=168252"]here[/ame].

    OsiriX is the standard, free viewer if you don't want to use the embedded application.

    My version of GIMP opens .DICOM and .DCM images. You have a .DCI file? I'm not sure if GIMP will open it, but you can download GIMP for free:

    ... except that the viewing software is not always compatible with Windows 7. I started looking around for the same software when I realized the eFilm Lite on my CD would absolutely not work on my PC. Then I found that my version of Photoshop can open the DICOM files, but I'm not exactly sure what looking at 100's of CT slices of my chest is going to give me.

    I think I'll let the radiologists figure this one out ...

    Image J found HERE can open the individual images.

    I use it a lot with Flouroscope, CT, and MRI images. Specifically DICOM files.

    I think I just went into the directory and found the index.htm/html file and opened it in a browser.
