July 2017. Chertsey, UK. Visbion have expanded their existing range of viewing applications with a fantastic new HTML5 based option. The Visbion HTML5 viewer – known as Image Display, will join Image Viewer and Image Web to provide a comprehensive suite of image viewing options for any situation. Image Display will be integrated into the Image Archive and Image World applications to allow studies to be launched directly from the archive, giving a seamless workflow. Image Display requires no installation and is a platform independent, zero footprint application that can be viewed in any browser – including those for iOS.
Image Display can be used on a desktop workstation but the functionality is designed to work equally well on handheld devices. Visbion are experts at using standards, working them into the core components of all their technology, and Image Display is no exception. The new viewer is completely standards based and draws on the latest DICOM Web restful services QIDO-RS, WADO-RS and STOW-RS. Furthermore, these services are now fully supported by the Visbion Image Archive software, something that Visbion intends to utilise in the future to launch a range of exciting new products targeted at mobile devices.
Image Display includes a selection of manipulation and annotation tools, including window levelling, zoom, pan and the ability to measure lines and angles. Images can be viewed in multiple layouts and using the simple but fast ‘drag and drop’ functionality, studies from different dates can be inserted side by side for comparison. Visbion are constantly looking for new ways of improving user experience and are delighted to be able to launch this new viewer to our customers.
