I a general pracitioner's office the most needed feature is to view images and 
cine loops.

Rarely does one ever need 3D reconstruction , surface modeling and what not.

So far most viewers have provided the ability to look at single images.

However today we are looking more and more at studies (set of images). Some of 
those studies are cine loops. Few viewers can display loops.

The ones I know of are Ginkgo CADx and Mayam. Having available Ginkgo CADx 
would cover most needs for general practioners and cardiologists (the only 
ones I can comment on).
