JiveX - Free DICOM Viewer for Windows

JiveX DICOM Viewer "Personal Edition" is a free DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) Viewer for Windows which is easy to use and has many great features. It supports loading files from local hard drive, network or portable media like USB stick.


The installation exe file (115 MB) is available as 32-bit version only, which runs on 64-bit operating systems as well. The setup process is very easy and straight forward, just accepting the Lisence Agreement and choosing where to install the program or accepting the default location and it is done.

Using The Program:

Every time you open the program, a License Agreement window will show up reminding you that the program is only for personal use, and any commercial use is not allowed.

The interface of the JiveX DICOM Viewer is available in German, English, French and Spanish. The system language of the Windows operating system is adopted at startup. The viewers always start with the English user interface on Windows
systems with other language settings. You can change the language of the user interface at startup in the dialog for License Agreement or via the menu "View" -> "Language". Once you have changed the language, the viewer uses your personal setting and ignores the language set by the operating system.

You can load individual images, multiple images or whole folders (including subfolders if "Include sub-folders" option is selected). You can also load images using drag&drop from the file system. These images are loaded in addition to already-loaded images.

When loading a folder with a lot of images through "File" -> "Open", you will get an error message reminding you that you are using the free version.

When I tried to load a folder with 242 images, JiveX Viewer loaded only 49 images, but when I tried to load the images with Drag&Drop method, I succeeded to load all the 242 images.
