Don't be fooled. This means *also* support dicomscope in
addition to those already supported.

Let me tell you this: *all of them are crap* as far as the
busy doctor goes. Aeskulap is, perhaps, closest to the
*looks* of the typical Windows browsers. Dicomscope OTOH
scratches the surface when it comes to offering the built-in
tools a doctor needs to evaluate images (but doesn't support

Here's another dirty little secret: Many of the commercial
viewers which are put on patient CD-ROMs are crap as well :-))

OsiriX and/or CADx need to get packaged for Debian !!  :-))
