I think what qualifies as diagnostic are those that counts with FDA approval.

Interesting question: what makes a viewer 'suitable for production ' or diagnostic?

Dear All,

Thank you very much for the valuable experiences and advice.

I have tried almost every DICOM Viewer discussed so far and it is revealed that all of them have certain limitations.

By the way, what do the lines "Not for diagnostic purpose" and "Clinically not suitable" (highlighted for all these viewers) mean? Are these viewers not production-ready? Or, we should not use them in production? If yes, these open-source viewers are useless for production and are we left with no option other than costly/non-free viewers?

Best Regards,

Dear Community,

We are setting up Radiology Information System (RIS) at our hospital. I have chosen and installed Orthanc as PACS. Is it a good choice?

Now, I am looking for good (and free) DICOM viewer! Any ideas please? I have tried AESKULOP but it does not have good features. I have also tried Ginkgocadx on Ubuntu 16.04 but its behavior is not consistent; it does not run the videos of Ultrasound.


Orthanc is a very good choice, and it includes a DICOM viewer plugin [1].

The Ubuntu package is called orthanc-webviewer. It is available in the universe repository.

If you need more info don't hesitate to contact the author, Sébastien Jodogne, through his web site or on Twitter (@orthancserver).

Orthanc is free and open source software. It won the 2014 prize for best free software by the Free Software Foundation [2].
