AccuSoft adds browser extension to product line

Pushing forward with its medical imaging software suite, developer AccuSoft last month introduced ExamiNet V1.0, a new Web-browser extension developed for medical schools and teleradiology firms. ExamiNet allows users to view and manipulate DICOM 3.0 images on the Internet by loading the images onto an HTML, Netscape, or Internet Explorer page.

With ExamiNet, users can incorporate DICOM 3.0 images into Web sites or presentations and save them as any of seven file formats, including TIFF, JPEG, BMP, DCX, TGA, PCX, and PNG. The saved images can be used in other software packages like Power Point or Harvard Graphics, according to AccuSoft.

The company will support any new DICOM image formats through its Image Guarantee: If AccuSoft's toolkit software is unable to read an image, users can send the image to the company, and engin- eers will create a patch to support the image free of charge. The firm expected ExamiNet to be available by the end of January.

Other offerings in the Westborough, MA-based firm's product line include DICOM Communications SDK (PNN 5/98), a kit that allows developers to write software code that bridges medical imaging devices.

Another product, Medical Imaging SDK, interprets DICOM data once they are received. ExamiNet is the next generation of AccuSoft's DICOM Netscape Plug-In.
