Charlotte, NC (April 30, 2012) – LEAD Technologies received the Top 25 Bestselling Publisher Award for the sixth consecutive year. In addition, three of its SDK products, LEADTOOLS PACS Imaging, LEADTOOLS Document Imaging and LEADTOOLS Imaging Pro, won the Top 100 Bestselling Product award. This marks the first time that the PACS Imaging SDK has won the award while Document Imaging and Imaging Pro are both repeat winners for multiple years.

The PACS Imaging SDK's award is a major achievement for LEAD Technologies since the product is less than two years old, first released with version 17.0. Its comprehensive DICOM, PACS, 2D & 3D medical image viewing development tools included the first of several ultra-high-level SDK technologies such as the PACS Framework, Workstation Framework and Medical Web Viewer Framework. These frameworks contain fully customizable, OEM-ready applications with source code to give developers a huge head start. Programmers can use the applications as-is with basic changes to the branding, or dig deeper into the source code and fine tune it to meet their precise requirements.

"We are pleased to see sales continue to increase in the health care sector," says Moe Daher, Chairman and CEO of LEAD Technologies. "Developing software which conforms with the DICOM standard is a challenging and on-going mission for LEAD, and we are happy to see it paying dividends for us and our customers. Our PACS Imaging product, offering high-level components to handle viewing, communication, security and archival of medical images and data, will save developers years of development time while ensuring compliance with the DICOM standard."
