Rubo Medical Imaging is a DICOM Viewer for Windows for Radiologists and Healthcare Professionals

Rubo Medical Imaging is a DICOM Viewer for Windows for Radiologists and Healthcare Professionals

Rubo Medical Imaging BV is a leading company that concentrates its efforts on the development of software based on the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standards. This specialization allows them to provide a diverse range of tools that cater to different needs in the medical imaging field.

One of their major offerings is the DICOM Viewer, a robust and versatile tool that is able to process and display all kinds of DICOM files, regardless of the modality, compression type, bit depth, or color scheme employed. This means that it can handle everything from simple grayscale X-rays to complex, multi-frame color MRI scans.

In addition, the DICOM Viewer is equipped with a myriad of advanced features that enhance its utility. These include DICOM query and retrieve functionality, which facilitates the seamless integration of the viewer into existing PACS networks, and DICOM push/send capabilities, which enable users to easily share images with their peers.

The application also includes a DICOM DVD burner for archiving images, an anonymization feature for patient privacy protection, an IVUS long-viewer for viewing intravascular ultrasound images, and a utility for converting images into different formats.

Every feature is designed to simplify and enhance the user experience, making Rubo Medical Imaging BV's DICOM Viewer an indispensable tool for any healthcare professional dealing with medical images.
