What is DicomLite ?
DicomLite is the world's smallest DICOM viewer. It runs without installation on any Windows PC.
And the great part is: it's completely FREE! DicomLite can be used to view medical images. Most Dicom viewers available are
big, require installation, are expensive and aren't very easy to use. DicomLite has been designed by
"doctors for doctors", resulting in a small utility that does exactly what most physicians need: a small program
that displays medical images and provides basic functions like zooming, contrast and intensity adjustments. It can
be used without installation, making it the ideal solution for viewing images of a patient when you are not working at your
own computer. The program is so small, that you can easily keep it in your mailbox or download it when you need it (hence the
name DicomLITE!). If you need to include medical images in a presentation, the Batch Conversion option allows you to save images in BMP or TIF
format, which can easily be imported in programs like Microsoft PowerPoint.
Extremely user friendly and efficient navigation.
Contrast and intensity adjustments by a simple mouseclick.
Support for most CT, MRI and X-Ray images.
On screen image information.
Drag and drop support.
Easy CINE navigation.
Very fast and intuitive batch image conversion.
Export to BMP, TIFF (8 and 16 bits), RAW (16 bits).
DicomLite is FREE software.
No installation required.
Very compact code, very fast download.
And much more...
After starting DicomLite, you see two windows at the right: the image information window and the file
navigation dialog. You can use the arrow keys, Page Up, Page Down and the mouse scroll wheel to navigate
through the folders. When you select a Dicom image, it will be automatically displayed. The image information
window displays the patient information contained in the Dicom header.
