Projects / Aeskuap


Aeskulap is a medical image viewer. It is able to load a series of special images stored in the DICOM format for review. It is able to query and fetch DICOM images from archive nodes (also called PACS) over the network. The goal of this project is to create a full open source replacement for commercially available DICOM viewers. It is based on gtkmm, glademm, and gconfmm and designed to run under Linux. Ports of these packages are available for different platforms. It should be quite easy to port It to any platform were these packages are available.

          This program seems very well written, and as a radiostudent I'll probably spend quite some time with it. Even at this early development stage, it's a very useful piece of software.

          Thanks to the authors for their time and efforts. :-)
