Medical imaging programming libraries. LEADTOOLS Medical Imaging includes hand-picked and optimized features to meet the specific needs of medical imaging application development, such as full DICOM dataset support, support for 8-16 bit grayscale, and 12 and 16 bit image processing and display with window leveling and LUT processing. DICOM 3, the industry standard medical imaging format/protocol is fully and completely supported, allowing programmers access to medical images retrieved from digital imaging modalities such as CT and MR scanners. LEAD's DICOM imaging support is one of the richest in the industry supporting 8, 10, 12, 16, 24 and 32 bit images including JPEG (8, 10 , 12, 16-bit Lossless grayscale, 8, 12-bit lossy grayscale, 24-bit lossless and lossy color), Run Length, Uncompressed, Photometric Interpretation (Monochrome1, Monochrome2, Palletized, RGB, ARGB, CMYK, YBR Full 422, YBR Full), and single and multi-page images. LEAD's Medical Imaging toolkit includes 8-16 bit grayscale display with window leveling. Window leveling is a linear conversion from stored pixel values to values to be displayed; LEADTOOLS can map the stored pixel values of interest using a user defined color map (using a LUT or Palette) or linear gray LUT.
