DICOM anonymization or sharing service, DICOM Library and WEB DICOM Viewer
MedDream is a web-based DICOM Viewer for PACS server that is aimed at making diagnoses, viewing, archiving and transmitting medical images. The DICOM Viewer can be integrated into any PACS system/VNA including: MedDream PACS, PacsOne, dcm4chee, Orthanc, Conquest, ClearCanvas, etc.
The MedDream DICOM Viewer ensures a prompt and reliable way to search, view, analyze and diagnose medical images, signals and video files from anywhere and on any device. Web-based DICOM Viewer is developed using responsive design, that enables medical images to be accessed not only on computers, but also on tablets, smart phones or other devices with mobile view functionality.
MedDream is FDA cleared for diagnostic use and is CE Class IIa certified as a medical device that can be used for review purposes or even primary diagnosis. Read more about MedDream certifications.
As a diagnostic image viewer, MedDream consists of a Viewer component, which runs in a browser and does not require any installation on the client device, and a MedDream application server, which handles communication with the hospital systems (HIS/RIS/PACS/VNA and any other EMR) and prepares images for streaming to the MedDream DICOM Viewer.
MedDream uses a flexible and open integration interface for connecting to HIS and/or EMR systems primarily based on URL calls, thus allowing it to be integrated into any medical application.
The MedDream application server connectivity to the PACS can be achieved using:

The MedDream DICOM Viewer has an extensive radiology tool set, which includes regular features such as:
Window. Image window level manipulation using the mouse or selecting from a list of available presets;
Pan. Moving the image within the image viewer, useful when image is larger than the viewer, after zooming for example;
Zoom. Increase/decrease the image;
Scroll. Scroll through the images of series by using mouse wheel, dragging vertically or with keyboard hot keys;
Rotate/Flip. Rotate the image right/left, flip it horizontal/vertical with possibility to revert the image to original orientation;
Magnifier. Magnify (enlarge) certain area of the image.
The MedDream DICOM Viewer advanced features and radiology measurements are:
Line. Draw and measure the length of a line;
Polyline. Draw and measure the length of a polyline;
Area. Mark area of interest with a polyline and measure its area;
Angle. Draw and measure an angle;
Show angles. Show all angles between intersecting lines;
Cobb angle. Draw and measure a Cobb angle;
Ellipse. Draw and measure an ellipse, which calculates standard deviation and mean values in Hounsfield units;
Volume. Measure the volume of a 2D image. The 2D area is spun around a selected axis to form a 3D shape and the volume of the shape is then measured.
Text. Possibility to write, view, edit or delete text;
ROI. Mark and store ROI for study instance;
Calibration line. Change the scale of measurement;
Intensity. Measure Hounsfield units at a specific point of a CT study;
Save annotation. Possibility to save and display annotations;
Delete annotation. Possibility to delete all or selected annotations.
The web DICOM Viewer has an advanced layout features, main of them are:
Layout. Select from different types of layouts to view up to 12 DICOM instances at the same time;
Thumbnails. Change position of thumbnails on the screen;
Full Screen. Possibility to switch to full screen view and switch back;
Multi-image. Select how many images can be loaded in one window;
Key Objects storing. Possibility to mark instances as KO and save them for later review;
Hanging Protocols. Describe how to lay out a set of DICOM images for faster diagnosis.
The DICOM Viewer has also: split-view mode, related studies, multiple studies and multi-monitor support functions. To find more information, please read the product Specification file.
The MedDream DICOM Viewer also has the image manipulation features:
Reference lines. Overlaying reference lines allow to indicate the location of an image slice on another image of an intersecting pane;
Orientation labels. Labels for tracking of image orientation when manipulating the study with the transformation tools;
Link. Possibility to make comparison on image slice location;
Cine Mode. Cine playback of multi-frame sequences with video seeking support;
Crosshair. Represents the intersecting planes of the selected point on the main study;
Reset. Resetting the image’s view to the original state.
MedDream provides the possibility to select and apply VOI LUT: non-linear transformation created by medical modality.
White label product with vendor’s and OEMs’ branding possibility:
The main supporting functions of the DICOM Viewer are as follows:

The MedDream DICOM Viewer provides not only standard image manipulation tools but also a way to read, manipulate and interpret electrocardiography (ECG) and ultrasound (US) data.
ECG manipulation tools are all presented in an innovative zoom model, which allows zooming in/out, measure and quantify the ECG data:
Measurement (mV, s). Area calculation indicating beats per minute, time, millivolt (mV, s, bpm);
QT points (RR, QT, QTc). QT interval - the RR interval is calculated as well as QT and the QTc (based on Bazett’s formula);
HR. Measure heart rate (HR) and compare its interval variance over the ECG;
QRS axis. Measure the QRS electrical heart axis;
Studies comparison. Compare of two or more ECGs.
For ultrasound data MedDream also supports these features:

MedDream can be used to measure the volume of a 2D image by using Simpson’s approximation rule; the 2D area spun around a selected axis to form a 3D shape and the volume is measured. This technique allows volume measurements of a heart in a 2D computed radiography image.
MedDream supports measurement of the Velocity Time Integral (VTI) on ultrasound (US) studies that can quantify the trace of the Doppler flow profile.
The MedDream DICOM Viewer proposes the possibility to view ophthalmic images from retinal devices such as retinal/fundus cameras, etc. allowing the use of ophthalmology PACS server as a retinal imaging archive. For retinal imaging, ophthalmic photography or other visual spectrum images, the DICOM Viewer proposes a color channels tool to digitally apply monochromatic filters for the primary colors as well as for the secondary colors to enhance the visual contrast of anatomical details.
MedDream proposes the possibility to search, review and analyze medical videos from ophthalmology devices, microscopes, endoscopes, surgical video cameras, arthroscopes, echoscopes and other medical video sources. The Video module is integrated into the MedDream DICOM Viewer, allowing the use of PACS/VNA as a medical video archive.
