A faster DICOM 🚀 ⭐

We're thrilled to share that our platform has made significant enhancements in DICOM performance. Our recent updates enable faster and more efficient processing of DICOM images, resulting in smoother user experience, quicker load times, and overall improved performance. Our team has put in immense efforts to optimize the platform, and we're excited to see the positive results. Whether you're a healthcare professional, researcher, or anyone who uses DICOM images, we're confident that you'll observe the difference with our upgraded platform.

Improved mammography detection! 🕵️‍♀️

We are excited to announce that we have made significant improvements to the speed of our DICOM mammography detection system. With these enhancements, we are now able to process mammography and breast tomography images faster than ever before, which means that annotators and reviewers can start their work much more quickly.


Enhanced loading performance for large volumes  🏎️

This exciting new functionality allows for a faster and more efficient way to load medical images! DICOM slices are loaded progressively, enabling quicker access to images without having to wait for the entire series to load. This feature is particularly beneficial for large datasets, where traditional loading times can be a hindrance.


Coming soon 🔥

Bit mask brush features for DICOM 🖌️

Our DICOM Editor will support bit masks! This new feature allows you to perform powerful and sophisticated image annotations by using our brush tool. You can easily paint regions to get pixel-perfect annotations. Our DICOM Editor now offers an array of powerful tools to help you achieve your desired results.


Zoom & pan 🔍

You’ll soon be able to zoom and pan your DICOM images with ease. This means you'll be able to view your images in greater detail than ever before! Whatever your background is, you will appreciate the added functionality and flexibility that this new features provide.


3D Visualizations

We are excited about the launch of our new 3D Visualization feature for DICOM images! This cutting-edge tool allows medical professionals to view medical images in a more comprehensive and detailed manner, providing a clearer understanding of complex annotations. With its advanced visualization capabilities, users can rotate, zoom in, and explore the image from any angle, enabling a more accurate assessment.
