About Atalasoft DotImage DICOM Codec Add-On

View, edit, and annotate medical images.

DotImage DICOM codec can be used to decode DICOM images and metadata using the Microsoft .NET Framework. DICOM stands for Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine and is typically used to hold medical images and information about a patient. Atalasoft's DICOM Decoder has the ability to decode images compressed with JPEG2000, JPEG, JPEG Lossless, and RLE. Licensing is runtime royalty free for desktop applications as long as active maintenance is in place on all your development SDKs.

The DotImage DICOM Codec is an add-on module to DotImage for viewing medical images and requires DotImage Photo Pro or DotImage Document Imaging SDK.  Add DICOM viewing to your web applications when integrating with Atalasoft's AJAX-Enabled Image Viewing technology for ASP.NET.
