Version 2.6 of OsiriX, the 100% FREE and Open-Source DICOM Viewer is
NOW available

What's new in this version:

- DICOM Print (Thanks to aycan company, http://www.aycan.com)
- Standard printing: layouts
- Orientation Tool for the 2D viewer: reslice series directly in the 2D
viewer
- Support iWork Pages for Reports
- Injected Dose and Injection Time are now editable for SUV computation
- Preferences for fixed views in 3D viewers
- Export movies as AVI or MPEG4 (only Quicktime for previous versions)
- Quicktime is now entirely based on QTKit framework
- Corrects a bug with JPEG RGB/YBR images
- New routing system, based on CoreData filters (SQL)
- Automatically compress/decompress DICOM JPEG files in the DICOM
Listener
- Automatically compress/decompress DICOM JPEG files when exporting or
burning CD/DVD
- Create DMG files instead of burning CD (shift-click on the burning
icon).
- Apply Convolution filter on raw data
- Interpolate in Z direction for Resample Data plugin
- Cobb's angle plugin
- 64 bits ready for MacOS 10.5
- Convert ROIs to DICOM SR
- Multiple memory leaks corrected
- Support VOI LUT (see 2D viewer menu)
- Export DICOM files in flat folder
- Change series origin for image fusion (2D Viewer menu)

See you next week during RSNA 2006 !

About OsiriX...

OsiriX is an image processing software dedicated to DICOM images
produced by medical equipment (MRI, CT, PET, PET-CT, ...) and confocal
microscopy (LSM and BioRAD-PIC format). It can also read many other
file formats: TIFF (8,16, 32 bits), JPEG, PDF, AVI, MPEG and
Quicktime. It is fully compliant with the DICOM standard for image
comunication and image file formats. OsiriX is able to receive images
transferred by DICOM communication protocol from any PACS or medical
imaging modality (STORE SCP - Service Class Provider, STORE SCU -
Service Class User, and Query/Retrieve) .

OsiriX has been specifically designed for navigation and visualization
of multimodality and multidimensional images: 2D Viewer, 3D Viewer, 4D
Viewer (3D series with temporal dimension, for example: Cardiac-CT)
and 5D Viewer (3D series with temporal and functional dimensions, for
example: Cardiac-PET-CT). The 3D Viewer offers all modern rendering
modes: Multiplanar reconstruction (MPR), Surface Rendering, Volume
Rendering and Maximum Intensity Projection (MIP). All these modes
support 4D data and are able to produce image fusion between two
different series (for example: PET-CT).

Osirix is at the same time a DICOM PACS workstation for medical
imaging and an image processing software for medical research
(radiology and nuclear imaging), functional imaging, 3D imaging,
confocal microscopy and molecular imaging.

Osirix supports a complete plug-ins architecture that allows you to
expand the capabilities of OsiriX for your personal needs! This
plug-in architecture gives you access to the powerfull Cocoa framework
with an easy object-oriented and dynamic language: Objective-C.
