Enabling innovation in imaging through collaborative development


Our vision is a world where

  • Innovative healthcare applications can be built with minimal resources
  • Production-ready medical imaging tools can be created from open source components
  • Research is translated efficiently into clinical tools

Our mission is to foster innovation by

  • Delivering a desktop quality user experience through the web browser
  • Creating reusable components that can be used commercially
  • Building a sustainable community of collaborators

Radical Imaging
Radical Imaging helps organizations develop great web applications for DICOM viewer workflows.

OHIF is a framework for building web applications that uses meteor; a full-stack javascript platform. Meteor is built on top of node .js, adding reactive templates (Blaze), a pub/sub mechanism (via web-sockets and ddp), and a fully integrated client-server mongodb making it easy to create reactive data elements in the UI.

The code is organized as reusable meteor packages so that it’s a straightforward process to incorporate new tools and workflows into the basic viewer UI.

Image module
  • OHIF Viewer and LesionTracker are available under an open-source, commercially-permissive software license (MIT)
  • The license does not impose restriction on the use of the software
  • OHIF Viewer, LesionTracker, and Cornerstone are NOT FDA approved. It is the responsibility of the users to ensure compliance with applicable standards and regulations.
OHIF Viewer

OHIF Viewer is a reference implementation of the OHIF framework targeted at general radiology users. It implements most of the functionality listed in the IHE Basic Image Review (BIR) profile. Although useful as-is, this viewer application is mostly intended as an example and as a starting point for developing more robust, feature-complete viewer applications.


LesionTracker is another reference implementation of the OHIF framework which focuses on an oncology workflow. Partly funded by a 5-year U24 grant from the National Cancer Institute (NCI), this project is intended to satisfy the basic tumor metrics workflow of a small cancer center. It includes a DICOM server for storing and streaming images to the viewer, tools for measuring and following lesions over time, and a database for measurements of overlay data.
