The X Toolkit is an open-source toolkit and framework for building medical and scientific 3D visualization that runs within the browser, It uses the power of WebGL to provide smooth 3D modeling, structure, and material/texture rendering with few lines of code.
Unlike other WebGL frameworks and libraries out there, The X Toolkit is a scientific & medical oriented library, It's not aiming to be a general purpose library like Three.js or WebGL gaming engine or library.
The project is sponsored by Harvard Medical School, Boston Children's Hospital, & UMASS Boston. It is released under MIT license but also copyrighted for The X Toolkit developers.
Slice:Drop is an online free medical viewer that provides 3D medical visualization through the web browser with the only WebGL and with no desktop dependencies or extra software installed or configured. It's easy and simple to use web application that supports drag-and-drop 3D files to the web page then load the 3D rendered data smoothly in the web app.
The X Toolkit supports many file formats including DICOM files, which make it preferred to build 3D Web-based DICOM application , here is a list some of the supported file formats:
