Free 2D/3D Advanced Visualization Software Available for CT and MRI

By Medimaging International staff writers
Posted on 25 Nov 2009
Free advanced two-dimensional (2D)/3D visualization software for computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging data software is now available for any healthcare professional. There is no charge for download or use.

Medical software company FiatLux Imaging, Inc. (Redmond, WA, USA) announced the availability of FiatLux Visualize Free software. "There is tremendous unrealized potential in medical imaging data,” stated Quentin Dewolf, CEO of FiatLux Imaging. "CT and MRI scanners generate huge amounts of data every day, yet the vast majority of that data is never seen outside of the radiology suite. If it were, we believe referring physicians could make better decisions, patients could gain insight into their conditions, and the expense and inconvenience of duplicate scans could be avoided. We deliver advanced visualization to any healthcare professional, not just the small number of radiologists using expensive software on high-end workstations.”

FiatLux Visualize Free is the only free advanced visualization software for CT and MRI imaging data that runs on virtually any modern Windows personal computer (PC)/laptop/notebook/tablet--including Windows 7--and is cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for clinical use in the United States. FiatLux Visualize Free is a fully-featured 2D/3D visualization application--not a demo--for any healthcare professional needing an easy-to-use means of reformatting and viewing Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM)-compatible imaging data.

The software is useful for any healthcare professional, including specialists such as surgeons and cardiologists, primary care physicians, radiologists, and radiologic technologists, physician's assistants, and clinical nurse specialists. Medical students and residents will find FiatLux Visualize Free invaluable for studying anatomy, identifying pathology, and reviewing cases.

Typical uses of FiatLux Visualize Free include an easy-to-use, 2D/3D viewer of images on CD or DVD, radiologist report verification, patient education, and procedure planning.

According to Mr. Dewolf, "We are offering this software for free because we believe that democratizing medical imaging data is important in the context of healthcare reform and because it is the fastest way to build a user community. We plan to add valuable features based on the input of those users. Many features will remain free and some will be available for a fee, referred to as the ‘freemium' approach.”
