You can quickly write\ applications to read dicom files and display them. The Dicom data is supplied to \ the programmer using typical Cocoa objects like NSImage, CGImageRef and NSDictionary. In addition you can also obtain access to the raw image data if\ desired.\ \ The core of the iiDicom Framework is a group of classes built in layers on top of each other:\ \ \ul iiDcmDictionary:\ulnone Provides the Dicom dataset and information dictionaries as an NSDictionary.\ \ \ul iiDcmSlice:\ulnone Represents one Dicom file (slice) on disk and has methods to access image data as an NSImage, CGImageRef and raw format.\ \ \ul iiDcmSeries:\ulnone Contains an NSArray of iiDcmSlices representing a 3D volume. Also provides a method to obtain the raw data as a 3d volume.\ \ \ul iiDcmFileset:\ulnone When provided with files or folders, this class analyzes all the slices contained and separates them into iiDcmSeries.\ \ You are not restricted to accessing your data at the highest level or abstraction, you may access your data at any point in the class hierarchy depending on your needs.\ \ Both Garbage Collection (Leopard only) and Non-Garbage Collection are supported.\ \ iiDicom Framework is the core of the Quick Dicom package which provides a Dicom File Analyzer, Spotlight / QuickLook / Quartz Composer Plugins and a Window Leveling Core Image Filter on Leopard as well as a pre-compiled iiDicom Framework (Tiger and Leopard).\ \ If you wish to use iiDicom Framework in your project, we recommend that you download the Quick Dicom package to avoid having to compile the project yourself.\ \ The iiDicom Framework also comes with complete Python Support (Leopard Only),\ available in the Quick Dicom package.\ \ \ \ \b Documentation \b0 \ \ Podcasts detailing iiDicom / Quick Dicom and their usage can be found at:\ \ {\field{\*\fldinst{HYPERLINK "http://www.imaginginformatics.ca/open-source/"}}{\fldrslt http://www.imaginginformatics.ca/open-source}}\ \ There is also additional documentation contained within the header files in the iiDicom framework.\ \ See Examples/README.rtf for example projects using the iiDicom Framework\ \ \ \ \b Requirements \b0 \ \ Mac OS X Leopard or Mac OS X Tiger\ (Intel or PowerPC)\ \ \ \ \b Credit \b0 \ \ The iiDicom Framework and Quick Dicom is free to use, however if you use the them in your project we would appreciate credit in your about box and a link to our website:\ \ {\field{\*\fldinst{HYPERLINK "http://www.imaginginformatics.ca/"}}{\fldrslt http://www.imaginginformatics.ca}}\ \ Also, we would appreciate a short email to: quickdicom@imaginginformatics.ca briefly detailing your usage. If you provide a link to your project in the email (open source or commercial), then we will provide a link back to you under "Projects using iiDicom / Quick Dicom".\ \ \ \ \ }
