The LEADTOOLS Medical Image Viewer Control C API allows you to incorporate Image Viewer Control functions into your applications. It provides support for displaying one or more images and for the real-time manipulation of one or more images. The LEADTOOLS Medical Image Viewer Control C API functions are included with the LEADTOOLS PACS Imaging toolkit.
This C API is a high-level component for building medical display applications such as DICOM viewers, view stations, Teleradiology solutions, and high-end diagnostic workstations found in radiology and other medical specialty departments. When building a PACS for radiology, cardiology, mammography, ophthalmology, pathology, dermatology, dentistry or any other specialty, this control will eliminate project complexity and provide a solid, reliable foundation for the PACS application.
Typical applications that can be built using this control include:
High-end medical diagnostic workstations.
Medical review and quality assurance stations.
Light-weight viewers typically distributed on CDs with patient studies/series.
Web-based medical viewers.
Display medical grayscale and colored images, including MRI, CT, Digital X-Ray, and Ultrasound images.
Adjust the screen layout either manually or programmatically. For example, you can display two different image series side-by-side, each having a different scaling factor.
Display overlay information on images, with full control over the display text and its positioning inside each window. Includes built-in overlays such as window center and window width values, as well as field of view.
Control a display container's properties, such as its colors, cursors, window leveling, unit of measure, and rulers.
Use built-in image manipulation tools to perform different actions, as follows:
Window leveling (adjusting brightness and contrast).
Panning or moving an image.
Magnifying an image.
Stacking or moving from one image to another in a series using single key or single click actions.
Rotating image perspective
Use the following built-in drawing tools:
Annotation tools: Arrow, Text, Rectangle, Ellipse, Ruler, Highlight, Angle. The ruler scales to the image's DPI and zoom or scale factor.
Region tools: Rectangle, Square, Ellipse, Circle, Polygon, Free hand, Magic wand, Color range, Nudge tool, Shrink tool.
Adjust the following settings for each tool:
Mouse button controls
Keyboard (hotkey) controls
Cursor display icons
Apply effects, as follows:
Apply effects to a single image, or to all images in the series
Apply effects to a single series or to all series managed by the control
Apply effects programmatically or through user interaction.
Assign a single action to multiple buttons.
Repaint the image more quickly by using the Low memory capability.
Use interpolated image display for higher quality.
Maintain compatibility with older 8-bit image displays.
Remove image regions.
Use different image modes (fit a cells image to its cell height or cell width).
The demo is capable of performing photometric interpretation, and can display Monochrome1 and Monochrome2 images.
The toolkit comes in Win32 and x64 editions. The environments supported depend upon the specific product, platform and function. For more information, refer to Supported Platforms / Operating Systems.
