The DICOM standard (Digital Imaging and COmmunications in Medicine) defines the criteria for the visualization, storage and printing of biomedical, public information (the format accessible to all), and the privileged format in the biomedical field, for the interchange between equipment from different manufacturers.

OsiriX a commercial software (15.99 euros on the AppStore) thanks to which it is possible to view DICOM images, files typically coming from medical equipment (MRI, CT scanner, PET, PET-CT, SPECT-CT, ultrasound and others) , cofocal microscopes (LSM d BioRAD-PIC formats).

The desktop version of the application (for Mac OS X 10.5.x) open-source and distributed for free. The transfer of images from the OsiriX application to the iPhone is performed by drag & drop. The version for iPhone / iPod Touch convenient for users who need to have a simple system to always have images with them (for example, to consult with colleagues) and obviously supports basic functions such as zoom and panning, allows you to change the contrast, manage queries and various requests (find, for example, the images on a web server or a WiFi network), measure the size of objects using a tool for tracing circular lines and regions.
