Top 4 DICOM Image Viewers for NeuroQuant

Hospitals and outpatient imaging networks use traditional picture archiving communication systems (PACS) that allow healthcare professionals throughout an organization to view a patient’s MRI, CT and X-ray images.  You can use something similar in your clinical practice without the IT infrastructure requirements to host a traditional PACS system and at little to no financial investment.

Below we have compiled a list of DICOM viewers that we recommend your facility use for viewing MR images. All of the listed DICOM viewers have the ability to send a compatible NeuroQuant MR sequence from their database to our CTXNode (locally installed on your workstation).  For instructions on how to install and configure the CTXNode with your DICOM viewer please download our Quick Start Guide.
