White Papers Written About DICOM

  • DICOM Images and Metadata with LEADTOOLS

    Digital health care is a booming industry all over the world and the benefits of electronically stored medical records and images are being recognized and adopted at an increasing rate every day. Its importance has even reached the level to which governments are handing out large sums of money to invest in and encourage the development of this infrastructure. One of the most important building blocks of digital health care is the DICOM standard that deals with images. This white paper will show how to use the LEADTOOLS DICOM SDK to break through these complexities with its programmer-friendly and powerful toolkit.

  • HTML5 Zero-footprint Viewer for DICOM and PACS

    The demand for zero-footprint applications is growing rapidly, especially in the health care industry with the increasing popularity and usage of tablets and mobile devices by health care providers. There are many ways to display DICOM images and communicate with a PACS over the web or intranet in a zero-footprint manner, but not all applications are created equal. Any zero-footprint application must do a significant portion of work at the server, but this typically causes a tradeoff in features and performance for which developers must find the proper balance. LEADTOOLS overcomes these problems with an advanced AngularJS framework that is able to query any PACS and window level and annotate 16-bit grayscale images on an HTML5 canvas.
