3DICOM Patient

View your own medical images in 2D and 3D for FREE.

Developed for patient education, our lightweight viewer allows standard 2D radiological images such as MRI and CT scans to be rendered into fully-immersive 3D models of your own anatomy which can be easier understood.

3Dicom Patient works on Windows, MacOS and Android and iOS devices.

Optimised 3D rendering works locally on your laptop, tablet and even mobile phone within seconds

Medical images loaded in 3Dicom are rendered locally, turning your hardware into a lightweight DICOM workstation.

Whilst an internet connection is required to log into the software and obtain updates, the medical images are processed locally which ensures fast turnarounds and protection of your medical data.

3Dicom Patient users can load Digital Imaging and COmmunication in Medicine (DICOM) files and NiFti files from their device directly in the software and view a fully immersive 3D render within a matter of seconds.

Immersively view anatomy with intuitive density sliders to hide skin and view internal structures

Anatomy isn’t skin deep and medical imaging such as MRI scans provide a great level of detail of internal anatomy.

Using the intuitive sliders, you can easily change the Windowing settings of the scan and adjust the Hounsfield Unit (HU) values to view skin, muscle and soft tissue and all the way to the dense skeletal structure.

Using the Zoom tool and mouse or touchscreen, you can immerse yourself in your own anatomy and get up close and personal with internal anatomical structures.

View your anatomy from any angle with fully interactive 3D visualisation

After the initial DICOM loading, the 3D model can be manipulated to view it from any angle and level of zoom with the ability to Pan, Rotate, and Zoom on both desktop and mobile devices.

You can also pan and rotate in the full-screened 2D views to view scans in the various slices in fine detail.

Easily reset the 3D view with the spacebar or Home/Reset button and use the Navigation Cube on the desktop and tablet versions to orientate the scan in standard orthagonal views.

Combine the simplicity of 2D views and a contextual 3D model with the 3D Slicer tool

Whilst in the 3D view, 3Dicom Patient users have the ability to ‘slice’ through the model in the sagittal, coronal and axial planes.

This provides the same 2D view as scrolling through the traditional 2D planes but provides additional 3D context as users can see surrounding 3D anatomical structures.

The 3D Slicer tool is also useful for removing additional structures such as the scanner bed, providing a clearer 3D view, and narrowing down the visible 3D model to a specific region of interest.

Additional Features

Multi-Planar Reconstruction

In addition to the advanced 3D volume rendering, 3Dicom provides multi-planar reconstruction of the DICOM images to generate three 2D views. Full screen and scroll through the Sagittal (Side-to-Side), Coronal (Front-to-Back), and Axial (Top-to-Bottom) images.

Adjustable Display Settings

Enhance the medical image visualization with simple brightness, contrast and opacity sliders that allow you to account for different exposures and lighten up scans as the lighter (softer) tissue is removed. Reduce opacity to create an ‘X-ray’ like view in the 3D view.

Easy Account Management

Sign up for 3Dicom Patient on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, verify your email, and you can load and 3D render your medical images in just minutes. No Credit Card Required.

Mobile Version on App Stores

We’ve optimised the local rendering of DICOM images so much that it works on almost all Android smartphones, iPhone 11 onwards, and tablets. Simply load files from your local file storage and you can view them in the file archive in the App.

Improved Patient Education

A 2014 study showed that patients benefit from seeing their own medical images, even in 2D, with a sense of a better understanding of their diagnosis and validation of their sensory and emotional response to the illness or injury.

And much more…
