Project title : A Web Based Medical Image Viewer
Author : Christopher Treml
Year : 2008
Abstract : Epic System’s software allows users viewing digital medical images to document their interpretations. However, at the project inception, Epic did not have an application that handles the actual viewing of the digital medical image. Currently Epic only interfaces with commercial medical image viewers used at their customers’ sites. Epic needs a viewer for their own internal development and testing. Prior to this project a viewer was developed over a summer internship for this purpose. This viewer was very simple and lacking in features compared to commercial and open source digital medical image viewers which are very large and complex software applications. This document describes the next version of this viewer. The viewer is a WPF Browser Application that interprets DICOM files and displays them to a user. In this version of the viewer functionality such as image filters, communication, and compression support will be developed.
